Notes
Survey number HAER ID-29
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N454).
Significance: In the face of opposition by the Guggenheim "Lead Trust," the Bunker Hill Company's president, Frederick Bradley planned and executed the building of a lead smelter, with the assistance of his local manager, Stanly Easton. This plant's output of commercially pure lead made it a significant contributor of this widely used material during nearly sixty-five years of operation.
