The Rumford Company, Providence, Rhode Island, were the makers of Rumford Baking Powder. The Rumford Chemical Works in 1856 began producing and shipping baking powder across the nation and around the world. At the turn of the 19th century, Rumford Chemical included 300 acres of working farms and communities to sustain the factory workers, and the Village of Rumford was called the “kitchen capital of the world.”
