Here is a little bit of the history of the Hoke company; In the summer of 1946, Mr. and Mrs. Hoke (using their savings from 4-1/2 years in the Army) purchased at an auction from the estate of Mr. Leonard Waesche a small, 3-story building located at the corner of Maple Drive and Miller Alley. Initially, the product line would include juvenile furniture such as cribs and play yards. During the 1950’s and 1960’s, trends in the furniture industry leaned toward a new interest in decorative and ornate furniture styles. A fortuitous combination of designers, marketing professionals, suppliers, plant management, and skilled craftsman fell into place and The Hoke Furniture Company was off and running. The manufacturing building burned in a fire in 1985.
