The Burden Iron Company was incorporated in 1881 as the successor to the firm of H. Burden & Sons, which had been founded by Henry Burden. Among the iron products that Burden manufactured were bolts, rivets, spikes, and wrought iron bars. Burden Iron was purchased by Republic Steel about 1940. This small collection of records include minutes of the executive committee (1910-1936) and trustees (1881-1947) together with account books (1912-1947), payroll records (1882-1936), auditors' reports (1925-1937), stock listings and transfers (1924-1942), and a forge work book for Steam Mill No. 3 (1874-1875). Note: Records of the Burden Iron Company can be found at the Rensselaer County Historical Society and at the New York State Library. These collections are described separately.
