How would you like to live in a building that once made my tin cups, flour sifters, popcorn poppers in addition to wire-based household items? Well, if you live near Greensburg, Indiana or are willing to move there, here's your chance. The building that was the former site of one of my largest factories at the corner of First and Ireland streets is being renovated and converted into an apartment building. My factory opened there is 1903 (ah, so many moons ago!) and it was the city's largest employer until we had to close its doors in 1923. The building was then owned by Cyclone Fence, a division of US Steel, and later, the Carol Cook Dress Factory. At one point it was also on the national register of historic buildings because of its significance in American manufacturing history (and rightly so!) Now its next incarnation will be Tree City Village, an apartment community aimed at seniors, individuals, couples, and young families, and rent will be restricted to ensure the units are affordable. We wish the Tree City Village and its new inhabitants all the best. You can read more about the backstory of the building and its renovation plans here. And in the meantime, just peruse the American made products on my site if you want to own a smaller piece of Bromwell history for yourself!
