Dixie Foundry/Magic Chef

July 2017 will mark 100 years since Dixie Foundry lit their furnaces and drew “first heat.” Although the company itself began in the fall of 1916, it came alive in 1917 through the persistence and determination of Bradford Rymer and countless others. Come and learn about Cleveland’s own Dixie Foundry and how it progressed to become known nationally and internationally as Magic Chef.
