Sharon Iron and Brass Foundry

Sharon Iron and Brass Foundry

Valley Iron Works

The Sharon Iron and Brass Foundry was erected in 1872 by J. W. Evans, Joseph King, Dr. J. M. Irvine and others. It continued to run until the spring of 1876, when financial stringency compelled it to suspend. It was known as the “Valley Iron Works,” and stood in the south part of town, opposite the office of the Stewart Iron Works. The building is unused, being the property of Buff & Irvine, of Pittsburgh, Pa.
