The Milwaukee Chair Company was founded in 1889 and quickly became one of the biggest employers and producers of furniture in the area. The original factory was destroyed in the 1899 fire but like a phoenix from the ashes they rose again. The company continued to produce furniture until they eventually closed their doors in the mid 20th century.
