Lumber Yard on East Girard


OSCAR BEISERT has a piece on the HIdden City website on the loss of industrial character of Northern Liberties by the proposed redevelopment of the JT Lumber yard. The article also discusses a number of 19th century lumber businesses and their interconnections.

I thank OE member Marc Zaharchuk for bringing the changes at the yard location to my attention.

For more information on the industrial establishments in Northern Liberties see the chapter in Workshop of the World featured here on this website.

Originally written in the 1990s by Dave Orr and Roy Goodman, it was updated by Torben Jenk in 2007. He briefly mentions the lumber yard.
