Wiltsie & Crump

This Pittsford landmark has been standing since 1886. Mr. Wiltsie and Mr. Crump are long gone, but their names are still proudly displayed on the top of the one time general store. What I have read is their establishment was one of the longest running stores of it's type in the state, but today the street level retail space is nothing so interesting.

124 years is a long time, not as old as the moon, but an enduring accomplishment.

And it is something to have your name live on for so many years. Not many of us will have that distinction.
