Landmark Hamilton Manufacturing Building in Two Rivers, Wisconsin,Being Reduced to Rubble

J. Edward Hamilton founded the Hamilton Holly Wood Type Company in 1880 to serve a booming newspaper and print shop industry.  The company soon expanded its product line to include cabinets for type and other press room furnishings as well as items for other types of businesses:  medical and dental office furniture, drafting tables, and the first gas-powered dryer.

Employing more than 1000 at its peak, the facility was shuttered in 2012.

There will soon be an unobstructed view of Lake Michigan from downtown Two Rivers.
