The Warrington Family: Broadened Horizons

In the deep foundations industry, the Warrington family is primarily associated with Vulcan. But for many years, and especially in the half century between 1890 and 1940, a good part of the family was engaged in other activities.

We invite you to visit our companion site Chet Aero Marine which goes into the family’s involvement in the Civil War on the side of the Union, steam yachts on Lake Michigan, George Warrington’s moving to Washington to serve in the Department of Commerce and Labor, his son Chet’s aviation career in the nation’s capital, and yachting that extended until the end of the 1960’s (as shown above.)
