The Zanesville Stoneware Co., Ohio's longest-lived stoneware pottery closed its doors this spring, after 115 years of continuous operation - 113 of those years by three generations of the Milman Linn family, at two different locations. At 71, Milman “Bud” Linn determined it was time to retire. His son Andrew, manager and vice president of sales, decided not to continue the enterprise. The pottery has been sold to Robinson-Ransbottom Potteries of nearby Roseville, Ohio
