Assemblyman recognizes Lincoln Davies Co. at ceremony


SAUQUOIT — Assemblyman Brian Miller, R-101, New Hartford, presented Lincoln Davies Co., 8689 Summit Road, with its recent New York State Historic Business Preservation Registry distinction at a ceremony on Friday.

Lincoln Davies, a 150-year-old business, began as a general store serving the local community and rural farm industry. Now the business is an extensive building supply company.

“Small businesses help shape our communities and history. Lincoln Davies Co. is just that kind of business, which is why I was so pleased to nominate Ed Jones’ exceptional operation for the NYS Historic Business Preservation Registry,” said Miller, who nominated the company for the historic registry.

“It started as a general store and now is a full-service building supply store, and it has been serving generations of families and the farming industry for 150 years, which is something we can all celebrate,” Miller added.

The New York State Historic Preservation Registry was created by law in 2020, according to the assemblyman’s announcement.

Legislators, the governor and the lieutenant governor nominate businesses to the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation which administers the registry.

Eligible businesses must be more than 50 years old and must have had a historic impact on the local community, Miller’s announcement added.
