Sewah Studios

Sewah Studios was founded in 1927 by Mr. E. M. Hawes and began operations on Marietta's west side at the site of the former Stevens Organ Factory. That facility was destroyed by fire in 1932 and a new factory was built on the Millgate property on Muskingum Drive. In 1954, the company was purchased by Mr. Gerald E. Smith and Mr. Lloyd M. Thomas who continued to operate and expand the company at the Millgate facility. In 1959, land for the current site was purchased and a new building was erected. The company has operated continuously at this location since that time.
- - Sewah is Hawes spelled backwards - -

Sewah Studios is the manufacturer of America's finest historical markers and is the predominant supplier of historical markers in the country. Sewah markers can be found in every one of the 50 United States. A visitor to Marietta can observe Sewah markers and plaques identifying major historical points, business establishments, schools, and professional offices throughout the city.
