There is a big West Bend Company reunion set for Saturday, April 23 at the former factory, 611 Veterans Avenue.
In its heyday the West Bend Company was a place where men met their wives, where their children worked and their children worked.
West Bend Company was one of the largest employers in the community as entire families would be on the lines manufacturing aluminum cookware or electrical appliances.
The historic factory has now been turned into “home” as Cast Iron Luxury Living opens its doors. The high-end apartments feature 13-foot ceilings with exposed duct work, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
Come tour the new Cast Iron Luxury Living on Saturday from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. and find the location where YOU used to work.
The photos are from a video created by Eric Kresser, owner of Imagewërks LLC, who restored the film for the Washington County Historical Society.
