William Rowland, a Sawmaker - Philadelphia, PA


 
     
 

 

 

 

 

 

""The works now known as Rowland's Saw Works were founded in 1802, and are believed to be the oldest established of the kind in this country. 

They have supplied, and continue to supply, a large proportion of the large-sized Saws in-use, Mill and Cross-cut, varying in length from six to eighteen feet.

About fifty hands are engaged in this establishment, and two hundred saws are produced daily.""

Edwin T. Freedley
1857
