Globe Dye Works was established in 1865 along the Little Tacony Creek (now Torresdale Avenue) in Frankford by Richard Greenwood and William Bault. Over the years, the facility increased in number and size of buildings as each subsequent new section was built and integrated into the whole.
The company that sustained the buildings was an economic engine, churning out its product for 140 years. The Greenwood family ran the business, dyeing and winding yarn in the same buildings until 2005.
