The History of the Perry Mills Frog Farm By Robert St.John: June 7th – 6:00 pm, House of Prayer, 63 Broad Street, Plattsburgh.
The Clinton County Historical Association is proud to sponsor a presentation on one of the quirkier stories in Clinton County's business history, that of the Perry Mills Frog Farm.
Founded in 1937 by Emil R. Neuenfeldt and located on the bank of the Great Chazy River, Neuenfeldt's farm supplied frogs to restaurants around the country and, increasingly as time went on, to hospitals and schools for laboratory and educational use.
Between 1937 and 1962, it was one of the largest industries in that village. The history will be told by Robert St.John, President of the Rouses Point-Champlain Historical Society who owns the former frog farm property and has stories to tell about how the frog farm came to be and how it operated.
The presentation will be held June 7th at 6 pm at the House of Prayer, 63 Broad Street, Plattsburgh. It is free and open to the public with donations appreciated.
