Long Description:
This is a gateway arch. It was erected in 1920 to show appreciation for the square deal they received. They were helped with buying their houses, provided parks with carousels, help paying health costs and many more benefits. Johnson City and Endicott were both named after the company and the men connected to it. They were factory towns. There was a saying by people immigrating to the area "Which way EJ". The many churches reflect the different countries they came from.
