Critical Access Hospital
Elizabethtown Community Hospital is designated as a critical access hospital (CAH) by the federal government. This designation is given to small hospitals located over 35 miles from another hospital. The CAH must have agreements in place with other hospitals that are willing to accept patients requiring additional and immediate care. Those hospitals must trust the abilities and capabilities of the CAH, to effectively manage initial patient care. There are 1,324 CAHs across the United States and 18 of those are in New York state.
There are only five joint Commission-accredited critical access hospitals in New York. Elizabethtown Community Hospital is the only one north of Albany and east of Lake Ontario.

Courtney Fair Furniture Maker

518 391-0371, PO box 232Westport, NY 12993


In a shop equipped with modern machines, Courtney often make decisions based on what the machine can’t do. Working with reclaimed and native materials that have a voice of their own, Courtney chooses joinery and final surface marks that could only be made by a skilled hand, hoping to leave a trace of the maker in the work.

Courtney loves the surfaces that result from creating a piece, and the following years of maintenance or neglect. You can begin to sense patterns in the way some thing was used by the marks it bears. Wide plank flooring reveals layers of paint worn through from foot traffic. Fencing becomes calligraphy as the boards warp twist and fall. Cupboard doors bare scars from hardware changes or failure. Patches are placed in boards where knots failed or mice persuaded their way through. The top board in a feeding trough becomes chewed round by cattle and rooflines sag from years of weight and weather. Courtney hopes to make work that evokes her passion for these stories, without making work that is imitative or contrived.

Adirondack Harvest

8487 U.S. Route 9,
Lewis, NY 12950
(518) 962-4810



Adirondack Harvest is a community organization formed out of concern for the loss and abandonment of farmland in the Adirondacks. Members realized that to keep local food available and to preserve the scenic vistas that farmland provides, farming needs to be profitable. Founding members also had a strong commitment to sustainable farms and wanted to insure that farm-fresh food is available. We currently operate as a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Essex County.

Since its inception in 2001, Adirondack Harvest has grown to encompass Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Warren, St. Lawrence, Lewis and Jefferson counties in northeastern New York. These counties contain major sections of the Adirondack Park and the Champlain Valley. Other portions of counties located within the Adirondack Park are also participating members including Herkimer, Oneida, Saratoga and Washington. Our focus has been on expanding markets for local farm products so that consumers have more choice of fresh farm products and on assisting farmers to increase sustainable production to meet the expanding markets.
