HISTORY

The history of 13 Lake Street dates back to 1873. The historical information we have below, was put together by the New York State Historic Trust and Cornell University.

“Historical and Architectural Importance: Replaced a wooded building housing Ashley’s Saloon which burned in 1872. Sarah Ashley was ‘contemplating building a brick building on the site’ in 1872 and this building was constructed shortly after that. In 1878, the building housed S.E. Ashley’s Saloon, Restaurant and Confectionary and in 1904, Michael Lynch’s Saloon.

In 1908, a music teacher named Margaret Jackway was at 13 Lake. In 1920, the building housed the Owego Gaslight Co. and Cortwright Photographers. Between 1930 and 1940, American Grocery occupied the structure. From 1955 until about 1968, Triangle Shoes operated from 13 Lake. The Haystack and The Woodpile occupied the building until about 1975, after which the Haystack became the sole commercial occupant. Apartments exist on the upper floors.”
