Cement Museum

Northampton was home of the former Atlas Cement Company, which supplied cement for the building of the Panama Canal and Empire State Building. It has a museum of the cement industry. The museum is open to the public on the second and fourth Sundays of May through September from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M.

Run by Ed Pany since 1997. Over 3,000 artifacts, and Ed has stories about almost every one. Items include a giant model railroad car (to help the company patent its process of unloading cement), a replica of a cement-hauling horse, and bottles of Atlas Beer from Panama (brewed by the Panama Canal workers).
