The O. J. Hammell
Company is no
longer in business, I have replaced present with past tense in any
text copied from Hammell Company documents which might mislead
someone into thinking the company is still in operation. The O. J.
Hammell Company, Inc. was bought out by another monument company from
Philadelphia in 1968 and was eventually closed a few years later. The
last remaining office, the water tower, and the factory, all located
in Pleasantville, NJ were later torn down around 1974? (exact year unknown).
The purpose of this web site is only to provide historical information
about the monument company operated by my family from 1867 to 1967. If
you have questions or information that might add to this site you are
welcome email me.
