    This is a place to discuss the history of the Johnson Foundry. It’s a long and complex tale that stretches from before the Civil War into mid-century. The Johnson Foundry was at one point one of the largest employers in the area, and the Johnson family notably constructed the small congregational church near Palisade Avenue.
