The Havemeyer family acquired the site and built the original refinery in 1856. By the time the 1870’s rolled around the plant manufactured more than 50% of the nations sugar. A fire in 1882 destroyed the original plant, but it was quickly rebuilt.  After operating for some 148 years the plant closed in 2004.
