Eastern Taxidermy is and always has been a family business, established in 1969. After just one year sharing space with a garden center on the corner of Morris Avenue and Portion Road it was time to move to a new location. As it turned out, there was a vacant luncheonette directly across the street. This worked out well for the next three years until it was no longer sufficient. In 1973 one last move was necessary. At the other end of Farmingville a new building was built and Eastern Taxidermy moved in and has been there for the next forty plus years.
