Perry in Wyoming County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Wycoff Harvester Company
The first building was erected on this site in 1828 and was used as a foundry. When it burned in 1839, local tradesmen donated their talents to build the pictured cobblestone building. This building first housed a business known as "Perry Steam Furnace” and later as "Perry Iron Works.” In 1875, the business was renamed "Wycoff, Tuttle & Olin” and manufactured the famous royce reapers and mowers. They employed 70 men and produced 1200 units annually, with total sales of $200,000.00. In 1894, the company then known as "The Wycoff Harvester Company” moved to Jamestown, New York, and closed after three years.
