SUMMARY
Vincent-McCall Company Building
2122 56th St, Kenosha, Kenosha County
Architect: Unknown
Date of Construction: 1900; with addition in 1905, 1908, 1945

The Vincent-McCall Company Building at 2122 56th Street in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is locally significant as the main manufacturing plant for the Windsor Spring Company (later the Vincent-McCall Company); a significant manufacturer of steel springs and metal furniture throughout the 20th century.

Constructed in 1900 for the Windsor Spring Company and expanded c. 1905, 1908, and 1945, the building continued to function in the metal spring industry until 1963, when the company ceased operations. The Vincent-McCall Company continued to manufacture metal springs and other furniture supplies at their Kenosha factory during World War II, while also producing large quantities of equipment for the war effort, including steel berths and bunks used by officers and enlisted men of the armed forces.

The Vincent-McCall Company expanded their market to include a number of other products such as metal lawn furniture and their own complete line of bedding, from mattresses to upholstered headboards, although the production of metal springs remained the company’s largest and most profitable market. The Vincent-McCall Company remained one of Kenosha’s largest and longest operating manufacturers from 1900 until closing in 1963.
