Here's some history on The Peters Cartridge Factory complex that was built over 100 years ago as a cartridge factory manufacturing military ammunition used during both WW I and WW II.

Story goes that back in 1855 a man by the name of Joseph Warren King purchased the Austin & Carlton Powder Mill on the little Miami River. King changed its name to the Miami Powder Company and expanded its operation all the way into the town of Goes Station, Ohio.

  • In 1877, King sold this company to build the Great Western Powder Works in the town of Kings Mills at a more favorable hydropower location downstream of Goes Station.
  • In 1881 Gershom Moore Peters, King’s son-in-law, began working at the powder mill and in 1887 became president of the company after King’s death. 
  • By 1889, four-thousand cartridges were being manufactured per hour by machinery.
  • In 1934 Remington Arms purchased the Peters Cartridge Company with production of military ammunition ending in 1944. 
  • In the late 1940’s, it was used as a pressing plant for Columbia Records
    • 1950 it was sold to Seagram to use as warehouse space, which Seagrams used for approximately 20 years.
    • In 1979, Landmark Renaissance Corporation purchased the buildings and renamed the complex the Kings Mills Technical Center.

    For a while LensCrafters leased part of the property to make eyeglass lenses, while other smaller companies owned or leased other buildings on the site such as the McCord auto parts and The Mason Theatrical Group.

    Today the structure is being constructed into restored apartments that feature many of the original characteristics of the historical factory. The Peters Cartridge Factory Apartments offer 13-foot ceilings, new windows with energy efficient glass built to mimic the historic frames. Each apartment is equipped with contemporary appliances, granite counter tops, and high speed internet.
