On this Day in 1954


On July 16, 1954, a deadly accident occurred in Chestertown. Many people now living here are unaware of it. On the edge of town, where Chestertown Industrial Park is located, was a business called Kent Manufacturing. The compound was centered on the present-day intersection of Dixon Drive and Lynchburg Street. The business started out as a defense contractor at the beginning of World War II, making munitions for the war effort. It was owned by five men: Chestertown Mayor Phil Wilmer, Tony Fabrizi, Joseph McLain, and Charles Eshman. The work force was comprised of 80% women. To locals, Kent Manufacturing was known by several sobriquets, most included are “The Defense Plant” and “The Powder Plant”.
