      Description
      Hoosier cabinets are so named because most of them were made in Indiana. The first Hoosier cabinets appeared in 1898, made by a furniture company called Sellers, based in New Castle, Indiana. Between 1899 and 1949, there were about 40 different manufacturers of Hoosier cabinets. However, the top two companies were Sellers and the Hoosier Manufacturing Company. McDougall, Boone, Nappanee and Wilson were also popular Hoosier cabinet manufacturers. (Wilson was in Michigan.)The popularity of the Hoosier cabinet started to wane in the late 1940s. That’s when manufacturing records for the cabinets became scarce, says Brandon Fyffe, manager at Kennedy Hardware in Zionsville, Indiana, which supplies about every Hoosier cabinet replacement part you can think of. (Fyffe’s grandfather also wrote the book Hoosier Cabinets.)  A modernizing world with built-in kitchen cabinets is the likely reason for the decline, as there wasn’t as much need for them. More clever accessories. Probably lost on most surviving cabinets are the door charts that originally came with them. They vary by manufacturer, but many include household stain removal advice, cooking tips and food pyramid suggestions for balanced meals. Fyffe notes that the Hoosier Manufacturing Company’s door chart has a clock and food timer card.  Kennedy Hardware’s exact replica of the original is shown here.
