About This Company

In 1890, the North American Company was formed as a holding company, controlled by Henry Villard  to create an electric utility empire in Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Street Railway Co. was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary, and by 1894 completed acquisition of all streetcar companies. Also in 1894, the last horse cars were replaced with electric streetcars. Finally in 1896, the Milwaukee Street Railway Co. was reorganized as The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Company, remaining as a subsidiary of the North American Co. The North American Co. was renamed the North American Edison Co. in 1922, and continued to exist as a holding company, owning The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Company and successor companies until 1947.

The NAC was one of the original 12 companies that made up the Dow Average in 1896.
