Nation’s Wood Capital

Much of Dubois County’s economical success is rooted within the county’s manufacturing industry.  The furniture businesses began in the early 1900s and evolved into a highly diversified industry by the late 1900s when it became known as the “Nation’s Wood Capital”.

Chairs, tables and desks inside the Museum tell the story of the growth and development within the local industry.   Come take a look to see what other products have been manufactured in the area through the years.
