  1. I was looking for Hoosier cabinets that may similar to mine and found your picture of Edisons. Other than the right side long cabinet where mine is short they are identicak. I was wondering if you had any info regarding their background.


    1. Welcome to RJsCorner B.L. When I left the corporate world in 2000 I opened a one-person cabinet making shop and one of my feature items was reproduction Hoosier Cabinets so yes I do know quite a bit about their background. I will give you a little bit here:

      Hoosier Cabinets were made mostly in Indiana which is the Hoosier State. There were dozens of manufacturers but the main ones were Hoosier and McDougall. They were the baking center for the early 1900s through the 1940s and millions were sold throughout the U.S. and the world. When bakery bread became common they lost popularity. They are very popular with the antiques crowd still and some so for thousands of dollars. I personally sold many reproductions.
