Hammond Fire Brick Company
The Hammond Fire Brick Company was a factory based out of the no longer existent town of Hammond on a stretch of the Tygart River in West Virginia. Remnants of the Hammond Fire Brick Company are visible today. However, structures do not remain; only small furnaces and bricks.
Backstory and Context
In 1950, the factory was destroyed by fire. In 1972 a mining company bought out Hammond Fire Brick Company and destroyed all the buildings and blocked off public access. Today, little physical evidence of the Brick Company remains.
