The company was founded afer a falling out between Frank Duryea and his brother Charles in 1898. In 1900, Frank went on to form Hampden Automobile and Launch Company (Springfield), while Charles joined J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company, who were about to enter the developing car business; they took over the factory of steam car and bicycle maker Overman (car company) (sharing the premises for several months).

Stevens-Duryea's first product was a 1904 tube chassis 6hp (4.5kW) flat twin buggy runabout victoria, the Model L.

After this venture failed in 1924 (though inventory continued to be sold into 1927), coachbuilding continued there, supplying the likes of Stanley and Ruxton.
