A record book kept by the Curtisville (area of Glastonbury now known as Naubuc) silver manufacturing company, F. Curtis & Co. The records begin in January 1852, detailing the employee names, hours, wages, and types of tableware produced. Also included are the production records of finishers. At the time there were 40 production employees. By November 1862 there were only five. Frederick Curtis bought the buildings and land for his company in 1846. During the Civil War he sold to the Connecticut Arms and Manufacturing Company. Curtis's company is considered the first to manufacture German silver (Nickel silver) in the country.
