Sharon Stove Works

Sharon Stove Works


Sharon Stove Works, R. A. Duncan & Co., proprietors, began to build their structure in the fall of 1888, and commenced active operations in January following. The town donated a tract of land and $10,000. The firm opened with about forty hands. The specialty was cooking and heating stoves. The works continued to run without interruption until November, 1887, never missing a pay-day. They then closed owing to the stringency of money affairs, P. L. Kimberly having closed a court judgment against the firm. Business has since been resumed, and the works are in active operation.
