Pioneer Iron Works, Williams Street|
Between Conover and Van Brunt and William and King.
On the 1880 map a building at William and Imlay streets is shown and labeled "Machine Shop". It is listed on the 1886 map as "Pioneer Iron Works". There was a building at this location on the 1869 map but it was not labeled. Parts of this complex are still standing.
The Pioneer Iron works were located at 149-163 Williams Street (between Conover and Van Brunt and William and King - end of Imlay Street.). Williams street is now Pioneer Street.

Pioneer Iron Works was build in the American Round Arch style. Also known as Romanesque revival it was an outgrowth of the German Rundbogenstil introduced to American with the German diaspora to America in the early 1800s. See The German Rundbogenstil and Reflections of the American Round-Arches Style by Kathleen Curran
Features of this type of architecture were: the basilica form construction, central large doorway, side windows, a bulls eye window, clerestory widows, skylights, corbeled brickwork near the roof line and pilasters. Other Red Hook buildings in this style were: Lidgerwood, Worthington Pump, The Brooklyn Clay Retort
Part of the Pioneer Iron Works facing King Street??? Is this image reversed??
Pioneer Iron Works was rebuilt after a fire in 1881. The largest building in the complex had a format similar to several other buildings in the neighborhood. Lidgerwood, Worthington, and Brooklyn Clay Retort all had buildings in the basilica style that featured an oculus on the front facade.

Pioneer Iron Works 1882
The tiles dated 1866 and 1882 are on either side of a reworked doorway. The company was incorporated in 1866. The building burned in in 1881 so it is likely that the 1882 tile commemorates the rebuilding of the building.
The doorway leads into a courtyard.
Pioneer Iron Works is now the home of The Pioneer Works

|1886 map NY Public Library|
The red buildings are constructed of brick. The yellow of wood. Clear indicated an open yard.
This map shows a 50 feet by 200 feet building between William (Pioneer) and King with extensions of about 100 feet on both William and King streets. In addition there is an extension of 50 by about 75 feet on the King street side and an 25 by 50ish brick building on William separated from the other buildings by a yard. On the east side i the middle is a wooden structure of about 30 feet by 50 feet. The yard is irregular in shape.
It is not clear what the buildings facing Conover street represent - houses? shops connected with Pioneer?
The buildings on Van Brunt street are most likely houses - possible with store fronts.

Management at Pioneer Iron Works
1903: Hartley v Pioneer Iron works.
In 1896, William L. Bass, Samuel H Millikin and James Hartley were the directors of Pioneer Iron works - 480 shares being owned as follows: Alexander Bass, 122 shares; William L. Bass, 101 shares; Mrs William L. Bass 51 shares; Samuel H. Milliken, 92 shares; James Hartley, the plaintiff, 39 shares; Alfred Mecke, 5 shares, and the Pioneer Iron Works in its corporate capacity, 70 shares.The 70 shares had been purchased from the estate of Henry Franke at $257.17 per share. Henry Franke died in 1895.
In 1909 Albert Grossmann was vice president and general manager.
Alexander Bass (1828-1897) and his son, William Louis Bass (1865-1946)
Alexander Bass, born in New Brunswick, N. J. in 1828, was the founder of Pioneer Iron Works.In 1882 there were 21 sugar mills in the Dominican Republic. A financial crisis in 1884 reduced the number substantially.
The largest central in Santo Domingo in the nineteenth century was the Central Consuelo, in San Pedro de Macoris, founded by the Cuban partnership of Padro, Solaun y Cia. In the 1890s under management of a new partner, the American William L Bass, the central became a 'small republic', to quote the press of the day: this may be taken to mean that it had acquired the characteristics of an economic giant that socially and politically cdominated the region.(Haitian Sugar-cane Cutters in the Dominican Republic) By Maryse Fontus 1989 said the Bass family "owned ingenio Consuelo in San Pedro Macoris in the eastern part of the country and the Central Romano igenio in the eastern city of La Romana."
