The Early Owego Antique Center is officially OPEN and we couldn’t be more grateful for the wonderful response we’ve received from visitors and well-wishers.
If you haven’t yet stopped by, we’re open every day 10-6, Fridays 10-8, closed Tuesdays.
Here are some highlights from our first few days:
Above is the ribbon cutting on Thursday morning. Bill Moon, the longest-serving manager of the Owego J.J. Newberry’s store, cut the ribbon assisted on the right by Bonita Atwell, one of the managers who helped close the store in 1996.
On Friday evening, we stayed open late along with other local businesses, as part of Owego’s monthly Art Walk. The Grady Girls of Ithaca provided lively Irish music.
Saturday afternoon brought a fascinating lecture by local historian Tom McEnteer on the Sullivan-Clinton Campaign of 1779 and the history of Native American groups in our area.

Of course the work continues, and we can’t wait to share new improvements as they occur!
