For 116 years, the Frost & Wood Company was one of the largest manufacturers of farm implements in Canada. The name "Frost & Wood" was known worldwide for producing durable, reliable, and the most technologically advanced machinery of its time. The farm implements they manufactured were the principal tools used in rural communities across Canada and abroad for generations. Frost & Wood was truly "Outstanding in their Field".
Remembering a Manufacturing Legend
When Frost & Wood eventually closed its doors in 1955, the factory was demolished down to the very last brick. The company, which had held a prominent place in the heart of Smiths Falls, was no more and left no lasting memorial to the great agricultural industry.
Through this virtual exhibition hosted by the Virtual Museum of Canada, the Heritage House Museum will present photographs, video, oral histories and archival material that capture the legacy of Frost & Wood and the lasting impact the company had on the Town of Smiths Falls and the agricultural history of Canada.
