MILLERTON — The Campbell family name is well known in the Millerton business community.
John Campbell Sr. first opened an appliance store in town in 1930. It’s 2011 now, and Campbell & Keeler, as it became, has been running strong for more than 80 years. Only a handful of area businesses (Terni’s, Saperstein’s, Valentine’s Funeral Home and Duxbury & Hermans come to mind) can compete with that kind of longevity.

Many trees eventually collapsed under the weight, taking power lines down with them. The area was one of the last to get power restored. “It looks like a second World War battlefield up here,” described resident Lloyd Levi.
