G & J Manufacturing Company

The G & J Manufacturing Company and other related manufacturers built factories in the early 20th Century between Downtown Dallas and the State Fair Grounds, which contributed to the city's growing industrial base. Dallas had emerged as an important regional redistribution center by the turn of the century due to its location on a major railroad hub. This factory was constructed in 1937 and produced air conditioning equipment, a growing industry that played a major role in the local economy.
