The Endicott Arch

Endicott NY

The Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company prospered during the first couple of decades of the twentieth century under the leadership of General Manager, George F Johnson.  The company implemented generous innovative benefits for its employees including company-built and -financed homes, a profit sharing program and health care .  E-J and the Johnson family also built or assisted  in building two libraries, theaters, a golf course, swimming pools, carousels, parks and food markets, many of which were available to the community at large without charge.   It was hoped that these benefits would ‘uplift’ workers to inspire them to work hard and be loyal to the company and to discourage unionizing.  This all became known as the ‘Square Deal’.  E-J workers collected the funds to construct stone arches with ‘Home of the Square Deal’ at the entrances to Johnson City and Endicott.  In 1995, the Endicott arch was widened to accommodate 4 lanes of traffic.  It was rededicated on the 75th anniversary of the original September 6, 1920, dedication.  They were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 23, 2001 (#01000171).   Pictured here is the Endicott Arch within a few years after it was built.
