The factory was built in 1930 by Roland Hazard and operated until 1949. The factory initially made just roofing tiles, but later expanded and created over 90 styles of pottery that were actively collected worldwide. Many of the original buildings are still intact on the 235-acre property. They include the old laboratory (now a mini museum), showroom, two kilns, commissary, bunkhouse, clay processing structure, and blacksmith shop.
The complex has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979.
