Fairbanks, Morse & Company was founded in 1824 by Erastus and Thaddeus Fairbanks in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Its industry was machinery and its headquarters were in St. Johnsbury, Vermont (1824-1871) and Chicago, Illinois (1871-1958). In 1916, the company was acquired by the Fairbanks, Morse & Company, formerly selling agents for E. & T. in the western United States. In 1958, Fairbanks merged with the Penn-Texas Corporation forming the Fairbanks-Whitney Corporation.
