Lady of the Lake
Our family business started in 1964 out of John Scollan, Sr. home. The business later relocated to Route 6 in Mahopac, which is the same location we are at today.
The original building owner, Herman, created a handmade wooden ornamental piece, named Lady of the Lakes, which at the time was proudly mounted over the front doors of the building (unlike today, Lake Mahopac was visible from our location on Route 6). Herman told us that she will look over the business. In 1990, we expanded and built a second floor on the building, which helped create new office space and a larger shop. During the remodel, John Sr. noticed the contruction team had placed the Lady of the Lakes mantel piece in the dumpster and notified Ted.
“I had to save it from the trash so I pulled it out of the dumpster and repaired, sanded and painted it and now the Lady of the Lakes continues to watch over the business above the large second story window,” Ted said.
