On s tate route 26 between Low vUle and Carthage Is the village of Denm ark, This village was the birthplace of both Lewis and Jefferson counties. It was here, ln the sm a ll fram e Inn of F ree dom W right, that 3 delegates from each of the towns that wished to make a p a r t of Oneida county Into two separate counties, met In 1804. After a lengthy d is cussion, a motion was made pe titioning the State L e g islature to establish two counties and name a com m ittee of d isinterested and non-resident cltlaena to define the boundaries snd designate sites tor a c o u rt house snd Jail ln each county. This motion waa adopted by a vote of 20 to 18. The a c t establishing the counties o f Lew* is and Jefferson passed both bouses of the ISOS Legislature, receiving tbe Governor’s signa ture on M arch 28, 1808. Also a s a result of a meeting of Interested persons at Free* dom Wright’s Inn. was the o r ganisation in 1808 of Hie Orient Lodge No. ISO F . A A.M., the second oldest Masonic Lodge in Lewis County, P r io r to the lnaugeratloo of railroad s e rvice through the town ln 1871, Denmark had been a pop ular stopping place and transfer point an the old plank s tate road that had carried the e a rly traffic to and from the north, ta 1888 , the stage route between Denmark and Cartkpge was under the charge o t E. H tugerford, a for m er driver on the Carthage- Utlca run ln the days of tbe plank road that had carried the early traffic to and trom the north. In 1888, the stags route between Denmark and Carthage was under tbe charge of E. Hungerford, a form e r d r iver ou the Carthage- Utica run la the dan of the plank road and during the years when the Utica and Black R iver ra il road was built ln Lewis County. Possessing a well-kept tavern with a friendly and popular Inn keeper, Denmark became known as the gsteway to the North. Along wtth Blodgett’s Tavern, built by Jesse Blodgett In 1824, following the burning o f a wooden tavern acro s s the road, other businesses flourished. In the tavern was a country store; a general store conducted by D a r win Nash occupied the prominent site tn the angle formed by the fork ln the village road. The Cook Bros, cheese factory re presented the business activity in the southern part of the ham let, and when lt burned ln 1906, was replaced by the CrownBrand Milk Company plant. Milk was brought to this plant from as far away as H arrisburg and Copen hagen. Cream was shipped ln large quantities to Antwerp and New York City. The company again changed hands and even tually becam e Queen’s Dairy Plant under the direction of Jacob K archer. Other businesses of the day included a blacksmith shop and t harness shop. The town boasted a physician who e s tablished his office In the Blod gett House. Tn past years, f a ir s were held ln different ports of the county, Including Denm ark, but since 18- 11, the county exhibitions have been held in Lowvtlle. Many of the village’s attractive lim estone buildings are still being used as private residen ces, and faint strains of days gone by still whisper through the streets of the village of Denmark.
