An Updated List of Hoosier Manufacturers

Welcome to Bill’s History Corner. I’ve been working on this list for while now, thought it was time to share it with everyone. Surprising how many companies jumped on the Hoosier Cabinet bandwagon in the early part of the 20th century. I’m still promoting Newspapers .com as a method for researching. Free trial, check it out.

Below is our (Coppes Commons) collected list of Hoosier Cabinet manufacturers as of Oct. 1st, 2020.  

Disclaimer-Names of Manufactures were found in many places, including EBAY listings, cabinets in antique stores, advertisements in magazines, newspapers, trade journals, etc. In most cases, I saw a likeness of a cabinet or an actual kitchen cabinet that was constructed in the style of Hoosier Cabinets. A date is the date of an advertisement. My definition of a Hoosier cabinet is A cabinet that is free standing, with distinct top and bottom sections, a work surface, and large amounts of storage.
