Stewart Metal Fabricators, also referred to as W.H. Stewart Co, opened in 1934. SMF came to a sudden close in 2000 because their contractor stopped funding them. Currently the building is owned by somebody that wants to tear down these old building and turn them into apartments. It will be interesting to see what he does with it. Currently the building is used to house the carriages for the Downtown horse carriage rides.  The horses don’t stay there, they are just groomed and prepped there before a busy night of rides. Electricity remains on in parts of the building, however most of the building is covered in a multitude of symmetrically aligned skylights. Natural lighting is always beautiful!

If I check the history of Stewart Metal Fabricators than I can easily say that this is one of the oldest steel fabricators. Thanks for sharing interesting thoughts here. Also check Rosh Metal LTD for steel fabrication help.

Chips may frame long spirals or little drops, contingent upon the material, and procedure parameters. The kind of chips framed can be a pointer of the machinability of the material, with long chips proposing poor material machinability.

If these are the buildings that were on the north side of Sheridan, then they are gone, and the apartments are indeed in the works.

This would make one hell of a space for a film production studio! How does one reach the owner?

I generally want to maintain and reuse older buildings. These have NO redeeming value and considering where they are in East Bricktown the land is all the value. Raze them and resue the land for something more appropriate for the location.

Company actually closed in 2004. They quit paying their loan payments and the bank foreclosed. I attended the auction the bank had done on all the equipment and material. At one time, it was a good business but they lost a major contract producing the metal boxes for a major phone company. Stupidity on their part to have such a high concentration in just one customer
