Harden was founded in 1844 by Charles S. Harden. It was one of the oldest family-owned and operated furniture manufacturers in the United States. After 175 years of business, the company ceased operations in 2018.
For over 170 years and through five generations of family ownership, Harden Furniture has upheld a tradition of environmental stewardship. By employing its own Forestry Team and adhering to environmentally-sound principles and proven silviculture methods, Harden has been practicing responsible environmental policy since before the Industrial Revolution. Not only is the Harden family five generations old, but many Harden employees have five generations of historical roots in the company. Why such loyalty? From the very beginning, founder Charles S. Harden Sr.’s concern for his employees and the village in which they lived was reflected in the construction of churches, a community house, and several homes for the employees – in a very distinct way, a sustainable community before it’s time. That groundbreaking pioneer spirit was evident in the Harden family long before a single piece of furniture was ever produced.
The company's originator, Charles S. Harden, Sr., was born to a family who moved into the unbroken wilderness of Verona, N.Y. in the 1800s. Charles eventually headed west in search of adventure and gold. Finding none, Harden decided to move his family back to New York, settling in McConnellsville and purchasing a sawmill on Fish Creek. His life experience to that point was one of living off the land exclusively. As a result, Charles Harden had a strong sense of respect for the land, which became part of the Harden family “DNA.”
Very good vintage condition, wear and distressing commensurate with age and use.
