Foust Distilling Co. Glen Rock Pennsylvania History:

Built in 1858, the Foust distillery was located in a hollow about a mile or so north of town, although he later built an extension facility within Glen Rock, near the railroad station. The distillery was an elaborate affair, with a six-story warehouse and a company town, Foustown, complete with housing, a railroad station, state-of-the-art communications (i.e., a telephone line) and even a "town square" with a decorative water fountain. The distillery processed as much as 3,000 barrels annually prior to shutting down with prohibition. After repeal an attempt was made to refit it for producing industrial alcohol during World War II, but the war ended before production could be started. The brick smokestack was built at that time, but never used. The Foust brand continued to be produced and apparently acquired by the Sherwood Distillery in nearby Westminster, Maryland (ALSO IN BALTIMORE MD), who bottled Foust and several other of their brands here. There are a few farmhouses remaining in the area, but mostly there is nothing left of Foustown.
