Antiques club hears furniture program

December 31, 2012
The Times Observer

"Warren Furniture Manufacturing" was the topic of Crissi Winans at the Nov. 26 meeting of Warren Antiques Study Club. Winans displayed photos and clippings of the many factories that have existed in Warren and several examples of their products. Members remembered family members and friends who worked at these establishments, and they and Winans related stories of furniture acquired through the years that were made in Warren factories, the last of which was in the process of being torn down in November. It was very interesting hearing why and how these factories were established here 100 or so years ago, how they merged and changed direction through the years, and the unique features of several of their pieces of furniture.
