Titusville in Crawford County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Titusville Iron Company, 1860
Over time, the industrial complex grew to encompass a giant square of Titusville. Struthers Wells Corporation closed most of the Titusville Iron Works in 1963 and subdivided the facility. Since then, Day's Home Furnishings, Grand Valley Manufacturing Company, Buffalo Structural Steel Corporation, and Charter Plastics, Inc. have occupied parts of the enormous Iron Company buildings.
Construction and interior views show the large scale of Iron Works buildings and the manufacture of boilers.
Damage from the great 1892 flood and fire hastened brick construction to replace wooden buildings.
Erected by City of Titusville, Oil Region Alliance.
