Meet the Masters: Roger Huntley

Listen to this story
Roger Huntley died this week at age 82. He was the sixth generation of his family to work their 300-acre dairy farm in the St. Lawrence County Town of Pierrepont. He was a fixture in his local hamlet of Crary Mills: active in the commmunity center located in the old Grange Hall, and as the proprietor, with his wife, Ann, of the Crary Mills "Mighty Mall."

But over the years and throughout the region he was best known as an auctioneer, a trade he took up in the late 1950s. Traditional Arts of Upstate New York named Roger to its honor roll of North Country Masters in 2000.

We profiled him in May of that year, when he was busy conducting the premier old-time sales of the northern Adirondack foothills and St. Lawrence Valley. Here's that profile, produced by Joel Hurd.
