Biography of Jeremiah A. Stack
Broome County, NY Biographies





JEREMIAH A. STACK - Jeremiah A. Stack, one of the leading realty developers of Binghamton, New York, is a self made man and has accomplished much through his own efforts. He can look backward on an eventful life with pride. Mr. Stack was born May 1, 1865, in Susquehanna, Pennsylvania, son of Edmund and Catherine Stack. The former was a thrifty and prosperous farmer for many years and acquired much property. The last years of his life he retired from the active cares of his farm and devoted his time to his large real estate interests.

Jeremiah A. Stack attended the public schools of Susquehanna, and as a boy was accustomed to aid his father in the farm work and also in the care of his property holdings. From this association developed the occupation which has formed his life interests and work, and today Mr. Stack is considered one of the leading figures in the realty development of Binghamton. In Broome county he has built over three hundred homes, and is also the builder of the apartment house which bears his name in Binghamton, the Stack Apartments, and also the Stack Block, on Chenango street. One of the recently completed enterprises which Mr. Stack has undertaken is the development of sixty acres of ground adjoining the Binghamton Country Club, now known as Shady Lawn. On this property he has built ninety one of the most attractive homes between Binghamton and Elmira, New York. He is now developing a tract of one hundred and forty five lots in the west end of Binghamton, known as "Recreation Heights," and when completed it will be one of the exclusive residential sections of the city. His strenuousness of nature and the faculty for making the best use of his time and talents are the qualities which have been important factors in the success he has gained. The best part of Mr. Stack's life has been spent in Binghamton, and he was one of the organizers and is now a member of the directorate of the Citizens' Bank of that city. Fraternally he is a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, and of the Binghamton Country Club.

Mr. Stack married, January 6, 1896, at Binghamton, Helen Granahan, daughter of Hugh and Isabella Granahan, and their daughter, Anna M. Stack, was born in 1905. The members of the family are regular attendants of St Mary's Catholic Church of Binghamton.
