JHA Companies, a full-service civil engineering and land surveying firm, announced last week the relocation of its Delhi office to the former Ronald Mullenix Land Surveying office in downtown Delhi.

“The building we purchased was owned and occupied by Ronald Mullenix Land Surveying, who was in business for over 40 years,” said JHA owner Joe Hunt. “Todd Jacobs and I are honored to carry on Ron’s legacy. We are thankful to his wife, Ann, for her gracious support in allowing JHA to continue the excellence that her late husband brought to Delaware County.”

With the purchase of the building, JHA also acquired the surveying records and plans of Ronald Mullenix Land Surveying, enabling a smooth transition for Mullenix’s previous clients, according to a media release.

Bovina historian to sign books at store

Historian Ray LaFever will sign copies of his recently released “The History of the Town of Bovina, Delaware County, NY” at Home Goods in Margaretville from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2.

LaFever succeeded his late father, Charlie, as Bovina town historian in 2004, and has been writing the town's history since 2003, according to a media release.

While remembering the town’s distant and not so distant past and its traditions, the book also celebrates the town’s changing present and its hopeful future, according to the release. In the 19th century, Bovina was noted as one of New York state’s leading dairy towns. As its dairying heritage faded in the latter twentieth century, farmers have diversified, and the town became a noted vacation destination.

The book explores Bovina’s early and later settlers, how they made their livelihoods, educated their children and entertained themselves. LaFever examines the contributions of Bovina citizens to their local community and to their country in a time of war, the release said.
