Historic Forge Business Selling Former Pa. Site

GROVE CITY, Pa. (AP) – A handcrafted metals company in western Pennsylvania is selling the site of its former plant, which burned down last year, as it builds a new facility along Interstate 79.

Wendell August Forge announced Wednesday it is selling the 2-acre tract in Grove City where the business was housed from 1932 until it burned down in March 2010.

Wendell August Forge makes hand-hammered, personalized metal giftware.

Its former plant was on the National Register of Historic Places, but was located on the dead end of what is now a residential street. The new business will be far more accessible on a tract behind the Grove City Outlets, along the interstate.

The company is temporarily operating out of space in an industrial park.
