1871 - 1923

About 150 feet north of here stood the famous Hampshire Pottery Works founded by James Scolly Taft for the manufacture of earthenware. In 1878 Majolica ware was a major product, followed in 1883 by the addition of useful and decorative art objects and souvenir pieces. With the introduction in 1904 of the famous "mat glaze", Hampshire Pottery was recognized a leader in its field.
