For those that enjoy historical information: When a business depression hit Mount Clemens, Michigan in 1907 to 1908, the Mount Clemens Business Men's Association began an active campaign to attract new industry to the city. By 1913, a committee had travelled to Ohio and Pennsylvania to learn more about pottery production, and had recommended that the association pursue the establishment of such an enterprise in Mount Clemens. A farm on Cass Avenue, just west of the railroad track, was selected as the site for the plant and ground-breaking ceremonies took place on May 19, 1914. Production began in January, 1915, and reached the level of 3,000 dozen dishes per week by the end of the first year. The success was shortlived, however, because the onset of World War I choked off the pottery's supply of English clay and threatened to shut down production. When the war ended, the market rebounded and the pottery was busy again. The S.S. Kresge Company, a good customer of the pottery, bought the company in 1920.
