Robert Nesch, owner of the Pittsburg Vitrified Brick Company at 1608 N. Catalpa, purchased the Pittsburg Paving Brick Company in about 1902. He changed the name to the Pittsburg Sewer and Conduit Pipe Company and began making clay pipes. Realizing that running two different operations was expensive and very tasking on him personally, he sold the pipe company to Walter S. Dickey who was the owner of the Dickey Company in Kansas City. The Pittsburg Vitrified Brick Company paved most of the city and supplied bricks for most of the buildings built in town.
