Pine Bush’s History of Commerce and Community

The origins of Pine Bush can be traced to commerce. In the early 1800’s the town of Crawford was formed by separating land from the town of Montgomery in order to more efficiently conduct business. Early commerce was based on lumber mills, gristmills and farming. Later the railroad became a major base for business growth. While the types of businesses have changed, throughout its history there has been a partnership between business owners and community members to work together to maintain the unique “community” feel of Pine Bush. Community and commerce are derived from the Latin root “Com” meaning with or together. As a chamber we serve to continue this tradition and strive to ensure a bright future for the area.
