Historical Note

The Bartlett-Hayward Company of Baltimore, Maryland, was started in 1840 as Hayward and Company and was founded by stove manufacturers George Hayward and brothers Jonas and Nehemiah. In 1846, Hayward and Company purchased Latrobe Stove Foundries. Shortly after, this led to the adding of Thomas Bartlett to the renaming of the company to Bartlett-Hayward & Co. The company frequently changed its name over the course of its existence.

The Baltimore-based company eventually became a leading manufacturer all over the country during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It expanded into the foundry, machinery, erection, gasholder, and engineering fields and became known for elaborate architectural ironwork. Among Bartlett-Hayward & Co.’s more famous works include the architectural ironwork of the United States Capitol, the State House in South Carolina, and the interior of the Peabody Library of Baltimore. In 1927, Bartlett-Hayward & Co. merged with the Koppers Company, a diversified manufacturing corporation that was based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
