Old Wakefield factory

An 1865 view of "WAKEFIELD'S RATTAN MANUFACTORY."

Founded by Cyrus Wakefield in what was then South Reading, Massachusetts, the business would eventually become the Heywood-Wakefield Company. South Reading changed its name to "Wakefield" in 1868, after Cyrus donated money and land for a new Town Hall.
