Driggs-Seabury was preceded by the Driggs-Schroeder series of weapons, designed by W. H. Driggs and Seaton Schroeder in the late 1880s and produced by the American Ordnance Company in the 1890s. Driggs-Seabury incorporated the former Seabury Gun Company at its founding. Driggs-Seabury's plant was initially in Derby, Connecticut, in the former Brady Manufacturing facility. The company moved production to Sharon, Pennsylvania in 1904; the US Rapid Fire Gun and Power Co. acquired the plant in Derby.
The company manufactured motor vehicles 1913-15 and 1921–25, which included engines of there own design,but sold its weapons production and plant in Sharon to Savage Arms in a 1915 merger.Under Savage Arms, the Sharon plant made Lewis guns in World War I. Dropping the Seabury name.
Driggs was reconstituted as a motor vehicle manufacturer in New Haven, Connecticut in 1921, confusingly named “Driggs Ordnance & Manufacturing Corporation”. Driggs folded for good in 1925.
