The Oldest Companies in the United States

A list of the oldest American companies with pictures where possible. The oldest company in America dates back all the way to 1632. For the United States, that's a long time to have been in business. When you read this list, you'll find an eclectic group including the oldest hotel in the United States, America's oldest restaurant, the oldest newspaper in the United States, America's oldest hospital, and the oldest distillery in the United States.

So what are the oldest companies to set foot in the United States? Take a look at this list and that will give a guide to what companies are centuries old.

Obviously these oldest businesses in the United States are all new compared to those over in Europe and Asia, since the Americas had yet to be discovered by the western-world prior to the 1400's and no business has survived from before that time.
