The Racine Silver Plate Company, manufacturers of gold and silver plated ware, Britannia ware, cutlery, etc. Was incorporated May 8, 1875, and was located on the northeast corner of Second and Main Streets. Then came the fire of May 5, 1882, that destroyed seven square blocks of Downtown Racine.
Attempts were made to move Racine Silver Plates materials to a safe uptown location, but the fire spread too rapidly. In the end, all that remained of the business was a few walls, smokestack and piles of melted silver.
