McFeely Brick Company

Fred Rogers was the son of James and Nancy McFeely Rogers and was named after his maternal grandfather, Fred McFeely. James Rogers became the president of the McFeely Brick Company, one of the largest companies in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Even today, a full century after their manufacture, many McFeely bricks are still in existence.
