Lawrence Iron Works

Lawrence KS Walkabout - August 23, 2008

17th and Rhode Island?

 

Lawrence Iron Works was one of several manufacturing companies created by Justin De Witt Bowersock. These businesses sprung from Bowersock being allowed to dam the Kansas river in order to generate electricity. He was also a congressman for four terms (1899-1907).

 

And his company made cool manhole covers!
