Larry J. Lebherz and his brothers incorporated The Everedy Company here in 1923 during the height of the prohibition era. The operation began with the production of bottle cappers and later would be known for its stainless steel pots and pans, innovative kitchen wares such as the Kake Saver, chrome-plated utensils and other items that can still be found in homes across America. During World War II, the Everedy Company supported the war effort by manufacturing munitions. For over fifty years, the Everedy Company was one of Frederick's largest employers before closing its doors in 1977. Everedy Square is now a unique destination for shopping and dining.

The Everedy Bottle Capper

Sturdy and simply constructed the Everedy Bottle Capper was the first and most successful device manufactured by the Everedy Company. Harry J. Lebherz invented a bottle capper for home use that would secure a cap on a bottle almost as tight as could be done in a factory. Although marketing was aimed toward the bottling of root beer, the Everedy Bottle Capper was extremely popular with those secretly concocting their own "home brew." Sales skyrocketed during Prohibition. The device is now a favorite among antique dealers.
