A look back at some of St. Johnsville's worst winter storms

Thursday, February 20, 2014 - Updated: 10:28 AM

With the beginning of 2014 inundated with winter weather, rushing in with the new year as winter storm Hercules blanked the area with impenetrable snow Thursday, Jan. 2, with school and events across the area cancelled just last week, the C-S-E would like to take a look back at some of St. Johnsville's significant 20th Century snowstorms. These photos can be found at the Margaret Reaney Memorial Library, 19 Kingsbury Avenue, St. Johnsville. They are just a few of the collection of thousands housed there, depicting St. Johnsville's elaborate history, including graduating classes, businesses, industry, officials, bands and much more.

Courtesy of the MRML - This Williams St. home, currently owned by Fred Lee, was once owned by Mabel Fowler. Every year, she'd erect a Christmas display that people (including busloads) would come to view. Here, the home is shown during a winter in the 1960s.

Photo submitted - St. Johnsville's Main St. is blanketed with snow after a significant storm in 1920.
