When John and Elisha Stevens formed the J & E Stevens Company in Cromwell in 1843, they intended to manufacture cast-iron hardware, hammers, and a few iron toys. The success the brothers found in producing those few iron toys changed their business plan.  Join Richard Donahue as he shares the history of J & E Stevens Company, the largest manufacturer of cast-iron toys in the country, in a Powerpoint presentation.   Richard Donohue is the Town Historian of his hometown of Cromwell, Connecticut.
