|John Middleton's Pipe Tobacco shop was established in 1856, located across the
way from the Philadelphia Stock Exchange and a "short
haul" from the city's busy waterfront. Ships' captains,
their crews, stockbrokers, and students from the
University of Pennsylvania all learned in those days (as
today) that they could depend on this young merchant's
recommendations. Since John Middleton's Pipe Tobacco inception, their focus has been on producing value priced,
consistent, one-of-a-kind pipe tobacco brands.
