What's a Hoosier Cabinet?
Many companies manufactured free standing kitchen workstations in the early 1900's. The Hoosier Manufacturing Company of New Castle, Indiana was the leading producer of these work-saving conveniences. The combination of their number one ranking and the fact that almost all early cabinets were manufactured in Indiana, the "Hoosier State," has led to the HOOSIER CABINET moniker for all kitchen cabinets produced during this era(1905-1941). Major cabinet manufacturers of the day included Boone, Diamond, Hoosier, Ideal, Kitchen Maid, Larkin, McDougall, Napanee, Sellers and Wilson. Thus, nearly a hundred years later, the cabinets made by these companies are today generically and collectively referred to as "Hoosier Cabinets."
