Inscription. The Hill Pottery Company, founded by Samuel Hill, began manufacturing earthenware products at this site in 1814. By 1860, the company had been purchased by Abram Fulper and became known as Fulper Pottery. On September 19, 1929, a fire of electrical origin destroyed Fulper Pottery Company's Factory #1. Pottery manufacturing was not resumed at this location, but was continued at Factory #2 on Mine St. in Flemington and Factory #3 in Trenton.
