"Furniture manufacturing in Grand Rapids dates back to 1836..."
"Prior to 1854, most of the furniture made in Grand Rapids came from small shops and sold to local consumers."
"The first railroad to reach Grand Rapids was the old Detroit & Milwaukee in 1858 and manufacturers were then able to ship by rail to points as far west as St. Louis and east to Cleveland and Buffalo."
'The reputation of Grand Rapids furniture had become international by 1891. "...Grand Rapids rose to world eminence as a furniture center, an eminence that promised to survive in a changing world and through the many changes in manufacturing and distribution within the industry itself."
"Grand Rapids celebrated its centennial in 1936. The entire city joined in the celebration in which the story of the Grand Rapids furniture industry was told. A display of Grand Rapids furniture and products produced here numbered over 72,000 pieces and covered 25 acres."
