The Mickey Coffee Pot Marker

Why We Love It

We love that this coffee pot, a little over 7 feet in height, now serves as a symbol of hospitality and a representation of our city.


A historic landmark, this large, tin coffee pot was built in 1858 by Moravian tinsmiths Julius and Samuel Mickey. It was made as an advertisement for their tin shop on South Main Street. In 1959, it was relocated to the north end of Old Salem.
