The AMES story goes back to 1774, when Captain John Ames began making America’s first shovels. We’ve been building America ever since, through wartime and peacetime, boom and bust. And we’ve had our share of adventure along the way-we’ve dug for gold, gone on expeditions to Antarctica, and built at least two of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

And just like America, we’re still working every day to build the next great wonder.
