In 1910, Nelson McCoy Sr. established the Nelson McCoy Sanitary
Stoneware Company on Gordon Street in Roseville. The company made
utilitarian stoneware using regional and local clay. In 1933, the
company name became the Nelson McCoy Pottery Company and production was shifted to decorative wares. Nelson McCoy Sr. was President
until 1945, Nelson Melick from 1945-1954, and Nelson McCoy Jr. from
1954-1981. The constantly changing product lines were expanded in
the 1950s as the annual output grew to ten million pieces. With five
hundred employees, the company became the nation's leading artware
pottery. The pottery had a tremendous influence on the local economy
as well as on the lives of its employees. The plant closed in 1990
after eighty years operating under the Nelson McCoy name. The
products of this successful company remain highly collectible.
