largest employers in Derby since it started in 1836. The foundry did not actually take on the name of Birmingham Iron Foundry until 1850. They made chilled iron rolls, rubber machinery of all kinds and rolling mill machinery for the paper and cereal industries. During the American Civil War cannon barrels and bayonet rolling machines were manufactured. In 1916 Birmingham Iron Foundry merged with Farrel Foundry & Machine Company of Ansonia to become Farrel-Birmingham Company and added the capability to produce gears and propulsion units for United States Navy vessels. During World War II it was the largest employer in the Derby – Ansonia area. The many buildings were torn down in 2000 to make way for Home Depot, which is behind the memorial.
