GREENCASTLE IRON AND NAIL FACTORY
It affords us much pleasure to announce that Greencastle is to have an Iron and Nail Factory. The company formed for that purpose, completed its organization last week by the election of the following officers, and is to be known as the Greencastle Iron and Nail Company: President--J. F. Darnall; Sec. and Treasurer--A. S. Bryant; Directors--F. P. Nelson, R. M. Hazlett, Wm. Bridges, John Lundy, Samuel Catherwood, A. M. Lockridge and O. P. Badger. Stock to the amount of $60,000 has been taken to commence with, and the stockholders are composed of our most wealthy and responsible citizens. The factory will be located on the Indianapolis and Terre Haute Railroad, not far from the depot, and it is proposed to commene work immediately and have the establishment running by the first of January. This looks like business, and shows that Putnam county contains men who have the enterprise to make Greencastle occupy the position in the commercial world that her natural position entitles her to. The Nail Factory is but the neuclus around which will gather enterprises of a similar kind, and we expect that before many years have elapsed our population, our wealth and our prosperity will have increased many times. With railroads extending to every part of the State, with turnpikes reaching far out into the country; good health, good schools, numerous churches and enterprising citizens, why should Greencastle occupy a secondary place to any other inland town in the State?--All we want to make us secure in our prosperity is manufactories, and there is every reason to believe that, now the work has commenced, we will speedily have these.
