S-W Supply Company

Picture of property 215 E Prairie
Girard (Crawford County)
Listed in National Register May 21, 2009

Architect: unknown
Area of Significance: secondary structure; manufacturing facility
Architectural Style(s): Commercial

The S-W Supply Company property is located southeast of Girard's courthouse square in an area that transitions from commercial to residential. Local entrepreneur Marion Slawson, whose career spanned many fields including law, farming, and public service, founded the company in 1923 to manufacture his stamped-metal grave marker. S-W stood for Slawson-Wilson, his last name and his wife's maiden name. During its first years in business, the fledgling company operated out of the wood-frame barn behind the Slawson home. By 1926, the company was producing enough grave markers to merit the construction of a new building, and by 1933, the company's annual sales reached $35,000 and employed 11 people. The nominated property includes three buildings: a 1926 two-story main brick building with stepped parapet and monitor roof, a circa 1905 one-and-a-half-story gabled wood-frame barn, and a circa 1925 one-story garage. It was nominated for its association with local industry.
