All of the above. Up there with Clapps. When the company in Weymouth Massachusetts demised it was like 150 years old. The factory became a museum and offices rather than be demolished.

From Wiki

Weymouth was heavily involved in the shoemaking industry from the first years of the 18th century right through to 1973, when the Stetson Shoe Company closed its doors. The building is currently being used for medical offices.[18]

Weymouth is home to the house where Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams and mother to President John Quincy Adams, was born

Also in Massachusetts, was the home of Stacy Adams. They started making shoes in 1875, and continued to make quality shoes (with high end prices) until the 60's.

Nice shoes, yes. Top shoes, no. I've handled maybe a half dozen Stacy Adams shoes from the 40's & 50's. They are just so-so in quality. They used thinner leather that often doesn't survive today. Construction was alright, but they were more lightweight thsn some of their brethren.
