Pierre Lorillard built his snuff mill in the woods of Manhattan in 1760, when woods made up most of the island. Though most famous as a snuff and smoking tobacco maker, Lorillard was also a huge cigar maker, packing cigars in tin, wood and cardboard. A history of Lorillard is in the works, scheduled for 2008. In the meanwhile, a selection of their tin packed brands if offered for your enjoyment.

Lorillard products are marked Fact. 17, 2nd Virginia before 1920, Fact. 17 Virginia after 1920.
