The photos on this page and the next were taken by Mike Rohrer,
and show the Crowell works in Greencastle, Pa., within the last few

The photos show three of the Crowell buildings, including the
pattern building, the main office building (which is now an
apartment building – you can see that it has Emerson-Brantingham
still painted on it from when Geiser Mfg. Co. owned it) and the
Crowel assembly building, which now houses an antique store.

The buildings appear sound, and safely preserved for the
foreseeable future.

Steam enthusiast Mike Rohrer collects antique farm
literature and original Frick and Geiser drawings and memorabilia.
