Galway, New York

This Hoosier cabinet was given to me by a good friend when cleaning our her mother’s house probably over 20 years ago. Just finished restoration! I’m now lovingly finding baking and cooking items to fill the drawers and cabinets. I think it’s missing a rack on the top hutch, lower right door as there are horizontal dark thin stains (3) and 4 screw holes. I can’t find a picture of my exact cabinet. Would like to know the year. I know there are many styles and don’t see any identifying marks anywhere. Curious if there was a Hoosier museum and found you! Would love to visit soon.

Our cabinet started out in Elmira,NY. A neighbor of my grand parents gave them the cabinet when they moved, It was painted green. My grandfather used it as a woodworking bench/storage cabinet in his basement till 1972. At that time my mother had it put in our basement for me to use for woodworking.(I was 15) In the 80’s my mom had it restored to a natural finish, the one on it today. My sister took it to her home in Balston Spa, NY where she used it for storage in her kitchen until this year(2020) when I brought it to my house in Westerlo, NY. We are using it as a kitchen cabinet.
