Charles Reeder & Sons, Baltimore MD
Charles Reeder & Sons was Baltimore's first manufacturer of steam engines: it opened in 1813 and closed in 1904. They expanded into shipbuilding on only a modest scale, building only five complete ships, but in their later years they did good business outfitting hulls built elsewhere. Their plant was at the foot of Federal Hill, on the north side, where Rash Field is today. Comments or queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
