Grout Brothers was a manufacturer of steam-powered automobiles in Orange, Massachusetts. The three brothers, Carl, Fred and C.B. were set up in business by their father William H. Grout who had made sewing machines under the New Home name in partnership with Thomas H. White. The early cars were sold under the New Home name.

The Grout name debut on autos in 1899.[1]

  History

In 1900, Grout offered a four-seat steam trap[2] powered by a two-cylinder engine mounted under the seat. An enclosed body model followed in 1901.

  1904 Grout steam powered automobile

The 1904 Grout Touring Car was a touring car model. It could seat 5 passengers and sold for US$2000. The 2-cylinder steam engine was mounted horizontally at the center of the car, with the boiler at the front under the typical touring car hood. This engine produced 12 hp (8.9 kW). The car weighed 2200 lb (998 kg).

In 1904 Grout introduced a range of conventional 4-cylinder gasoline-engined cars, but by then the company had financial problems, and few were made. The last cars were made in 1912.

The steamers were exported to the United Kingdom and sold under the Weston name.

The Grout assembly plant in Orange, MA was still standing in 2009 and was also home to Minute Tapioca Company and since 1977, has been the corporate offices of Pete's Tire Barns, Inc. The initial structure is still intact with additions on the sides of the back of the building. Over the years, Pete's Tire Barns has uncovered artifacts from the manufacturing facility including wheels, tires, etc.

The Orange Historical Society Museum currently houses two Grout Automobiles.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
