[quote]He (htown) is correct. Griswold was made in Erie, PA for almost 100 years prior to being purchased by Wagner.[/quote]If we want to be 100% correct, it went down like this (this is why I said "essentially" above, because it's kind of drawn out: -Seldon & Griswold started in 1873 -1884 Gris...
