The Schofield Building


The June 1930 Power Pictorial showed the new Schofield Bldg.

(Charles C. Stieff III Collection)

As for many companies... an expensive new building right at the beginning of the Great Depression might not have been the best thing. But they did make it, and would continue on as a private company until 1965 when Caplan Jewelers bought them. Two years later, Caplan sold Schofield to The Stieff Company, who would make the Schofield patterns until 1977.

When Stieff bought Schofield in 1967, the building was not part of the transaction. The property was bought by AT&T. The building has since been torn down.
