History of Old Kaley Store part 1…

February 3, 2011

The Old Kaley Store, owned by Joseph J. Kaley, was a popular general goods store in Milton, NY from 1892-1931.  The store building was located at the corner of Main Street and Milton Turnpike. During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, this building complex was once “a drug store, doctors office, telegraph office, a meat market, coal and lumber business, grocery and general store” (Famous Old Milton Store Has Been Sold, Milton-On-Hudson newspaper article, November 13, 1931).
