The Molly Pitcher Frock

The Molly Pitcher Frock

Like people, buildings have their history.  The 44 North Bedford, home to Bedford Street Antiques, is no different.  The northern, three-story section of Bedford Street Antiques was originally a church.  Completed by the First Lutheran Church in 1852 at a cost of $7,122.50, glimpses of the original architecture can be found throughout the three floors.  During the Confederate Invasion of Carlisle, the church was struck twice. One shell landed in the supports of the roof without exploding.   Attendance was down until the shell was removed!

When the congregation built its present church on the corner of E. High and S. Bedford at the turn of the 1900s, the John W. Plank Company renovated the church into a factory for the manufacturing of women’s and children’s garments.  On the cutting edge of ready-to-wear day clothing, one of the company’s most successful lines was the one-piece cotton dress known as the “Molly Pitcher Frock.”  Plank’s garment business eventually became the Carlisle Garment Company in 1913.  In 1956, a 10,000 square foot building on the adjoining southern property was added for storage and shipping.  In its peak year of 1962, the company produced and shipped 175,464 dozen dresses and pajamas – that’s 72,105,505 pieces!  Total employment was about 300 with a payroll in 1963 of $650,000.  The company operated until 1976.

Molly Pitcher’s Poem

All day the great guns barked;
All day the big balls screeched and soared;
All day, ‘mid the sweating gunners grim,
Who toiled in their smoke-shroud dense and dim,
Sweet Molly labored with courage high,
With steady hand and watchful eye,
Till the day was ours, and the sinking sun
Looked down on the field of Monmouth won,
And Molly standing beside her gun.

Laura E. Richards

You can read Carlisle’s poem to Molly Pitcher on a visit to the Molly Pitcher Monument located in Carlisle’s Old Graveyard on East South St.
FYI: The statue of is a composite likeness of the descendants of Mary Hays McCauley, Carlisle’s Molly Pitcher.

Oaktree Environmental Services

In 2007, former US Army veterans, John New and Steve Kreis, recognized the need for improving the quality of services available to the public in the area of wastewater treatment and hauling. Armed with the knowledge and experience of providing great customer service, they set out to form a strong brand that stood for loyalty and integrity.

In 2008, Oaktree Environmental Services, Inc. was formed and began acquiring and consolidating small, family-run septic and portable restroom companies with the goal of providing great, consistent service at a fair price.

From 2008-2012, Oaktree has seen consistent growth and provided jobs – bucking the industry trend. Being a veteran-owned organization, Oaktree gives back to the community veteran organizations through free and discounted services. We also support local youth programs and schools.

In 2011, Oaktree Environmental Services opened its second office in Newport, PA to offer Perry County residents the same great service that Cumberland County residents have come to rely on. Oaktree attributes its continued success to providing great service at a fair price.

Oaktree Environmental Services is a full-service provider of septic system services including tank cleaning, repairs and installation. We also sell and rent the cleanest portable restrooms available for your events.

Thank you to our customers for their support over the last four years as we have strived to exceed your standards for customer service.
