The JASCO Factory

Creator(s): Newcastle Village and District Historical Society

This exhibit shows the transition of a factory from 1848 to 2013. The original factory was built by Daniel Massey in 1848 at the south-west corner of Beaver and King in Newcastle, Ontario. Here, he started what eventually became the largest agricultural equipment business in Canada, Massey Manufacturing.

Through old photographs, line drawings and films, we show how the JASCO factory in Newcastle, Ontario went through a series of transitions from its opening in 1848 to present day use. The movie and photos show how the local manufacturing industry changed along with the Village of Newcastle over the years and how it evolved into a useful and attractive building.
