There is considerable confusion between this pottery, located on the corner of North Clinton Avenue (the Millham Road) and Webster Street, and the Franklin Pottery on Prince and Mead Streets. This site may have a history of pottery making that extends back into the 1850s or earlier. There is much conflicting information in Woodward and Hageman 1883, Harney 1929 and Goldberg 1998.
