The Oakwood Avenue foundry was constructed the following year despite the nation being in the midst of a civil war and Troy being racked by a draft riot second only to the one in New York City.
The business remained in operation until 1916 making Gold Coin heating stoves and Gold Medal cooking ranges. The 53 years of operation was the second only to Fuller & Warren among Troy's stove makers.
The factory was used as a storage facility and auto repair shop for 15 years after stove making ended. The last of the buildings in the complex that covered 4 acres at its height was destroy in a four alarm fire in May 1931.
