A. Hall and Sons Terra Cotta was founded in 1846 in Perth Amboy, New Jersey due to Perth Amboy's rich supplies of clay. It was one of the first successful terra cotta plants in the United States. Originally, the manufactory produced porcelain and household wares but transitioned to terra cotta items as time progressed. The company, always located at 59 Buckingham Avenue, changed its name to the Perth Amboy Terra Cotta Company and then to Atlantic Terra Cotta which, as the preeminent terra cotta producer in the United States, went on to produce in its kilns the terra cotta for such notable buildings as the United States Supreme Court, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Woolworth Building.
