Keller was founded in 1885 by German immigrants in Corydon, Indiana and originally produced wood spokes for farm wagons. The Company later expanded to produce the whole wagon under a contract with The International Harvester Company. With the introduction of the motorized metal farm tractor following the Great Depression, Keller converted its production to household furniture while also manufacturing walk-in ice boxes for the U.S. Army during the Second World War. Following the War, Keller expanded furniture production to become one of the nation’s leading producers of solid wood bedroom and dining room furniture. As noted above, Keller no longer sells any furniture or replacement parts.
