Fun Fact: Drywall was invented in 1916 by the U.S. Gypsum Company. It was originally named “sackett board” after the sacket plaster company. Around that time, it was only sold in the form of small, fireproof times. Eventually, their marketing team came up with the term “sheetrock” to improve the reputation of drywall.
