George M. Landers 1813 - 1895
George Landers, another member of the Walnut Hill Park Company, was a giant among nineteenth century industrialists. Born in Lenox, Massachusetts, he came to New Britain at the age of sixteen and learned the carpentry trade. In 1842 he built a shop on East Main Street and started to manufacture hardware. The company was later renamed Landers, Frary and Clark.
Landers served the city in many ways. He was a director of the New Britain Gas Company and New Britain National Bank. An original member of the sewer commission, he also served on the school board and was instrumental in the construction of the Civil War Soldiers Monument. Also active in politics, Landers served three terms each in the State House of Representatives and State Senate. He was twice appointed State Bank Commissioner and was elected to the forty-fourth and forty-fifth Congress in 1874 and 1876.
