A Brief History of the Romer Brothers Manufacturing Company

Project type

Text - A member of the "Brief History" Series


Jan 2023

Noted in Jacob Riis's famous text "The Making of an American", the Romers were a classic example of immigration followed by hard work, perseverance, and strong ethics leading to the "American Dream". Their stay in western NY spanned the latter half of the 1800s, and their axe legacy spanned for years after. With a complicated history in manufacturing, the Romer name lived on in multiple companies even after the family was no longer involved. This dynamic makes following the family name difficult, and this modest addition to Exploring Axe History's "A Brief History" line lays out those specifics for collectors and axe enthusiasts alike.
