ATCHISON FOUNDRY AND MACHINE WORKS
Atchison, Kansas lured Captain John Seaton to town in 1872 to improve the Atchison Foundry and Machine Works. His experience and reputation soon began turning out decorative wrought iron fences, spiral staircases, and hitching posts for horses. The Foundry expanded quickly to employ over 200 workers and Seaton became one of the leading citizens of Atchison. Besides establishing the foundry which became the center of the town's industry, he also owned the local theater, served on the school board, was elected to the Kansas Legislature in 1889, served on the Kansas Penitentiary Board, and was nominated for Governor of Kansas. What a guy!
