In the 1890s, the pottery of German immigrant Jacob Fisher was the largest stoneware business in the state. Fisher took advantage of his location on the canal by loading stoneware onto his two canal boats and transporting it throughout the state's interior. Butter churns came with a wooden dasher that fit through a hole in the churn's lid.
