Description

In 1890, Robert Hall Sr., Silas Ferguson, and John J. Purinton built a six kiln pottery that became known as U. S. Pottery.  A disastrous fire forced the pottery to become part of the East Liverpool Potteries Co. which disbanded in 1900.  After that U. S. Pottery again became an independent company.
