The identification and recognition of legacy businesses is an approach to preservation that celebrates the significance and contributions of longstanding local businesses, not just the spaces they inhabit. These legacy businesses have helped shape the character of the neighborhood they're located in and continue to serve it today.
A legacy business is defined as one that has been in existence for 50 years or more. Since these legacy businesses tend to have smaller margins and lack outside investors or shareholders, their continued success depends on our support.
If you know a legacy business not included in our registry, please let us know. We'll research the business and add, where qualified.
