150th Anniversary Celebrations for These Companies



The year was 1870. The 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving black males the right to vote, became law. And of the many companies getting started as the United States was recovering from the Civil War, these 13 have survived to celebrate their 150th anniversaries in 2020. Eight are generational family companies; two are public. Five provide food or beverage products; four are in manufacturing; there's a bank, a bus line, a real estate investment firm, and a specialty construction firm (ironwork and masonry).
