Westchester's 100-Year-Old Businesses


Whether large or small, businesses need so many qualities to be successful. For a business to succeed in Westchester for 10 years or even 20 is quite an impressive accomplishment. So those with staying power on the order of a century must surely be doing something right.

Here, we present eight businesses that have enriched our lives in Westchester for a century or more. When they first opened their doors, cars were fairly new. Not everyone had electricity. Men wore suits and women wore long dresses, although few women were found in the workplace.
