In 1884, Antoinette and her husband George built the Arcade Saloon in Sullivan, when selling alcohol was still legal. Later, George ran several illegal bars called “blind tigers” in Sullivan County, and he had to declare bankruptcy after a crackdown on blind tigers. Antoinette’s successful law practice saved the family finances. The Arcade Saloon now houses the Sullivan County Historical Society. | Photo by Diane Walker
