The Sawyer Place Company: Celebrating the East End’s past and helping to shape its future.
The Sawyer Place Company, owner and operator of Cincinnati Barge and Rail Terminals, LLC, and Fulton Railroad, is rooted in founder George Stewart’s keen ability to recognize hidden potential – to take something and improve it. Today, siblings Jeff, Ed and Merrie carry on their father’s commitment, with a focus on the company’s historic heritage in the East End neighborhood.
Respecting the legacy of their significant East End property, the Stewart family strategically – and patiently – looks for meaningful development opportunities, not a quick turn. In the meantime, they generously share their land for worthy causes and beautification efforts.
ABOUT THE PLACE
On October 22, 1929, a crowd gathered around an Obelisk in Eden Park as President Herbert Hoover commemorated the completion of the system of locks and dams on the Ohio River to control the river in nine-foot pools for commercial navigation.
The Obelisk is an enduring symbol to the Stewarts who continue commercial activities on the riverfront. It is located immediately above the site owned by The Sawyer Place Company and operated by Fulton Railroad and Cincinnati Barge and Rail Terminals.
