Richmond School Furniture Company
Details The Richmond School Furniture Company was founded by lawyer, entrepreneur, and manufacturer William Foulke Spencer. In addition to manufacturing school furniture and home educational equipment at the Richmond School Furniture Company, Spencer also manufactured the Wooten-designed desks, and founded the American Lawnmower Company, still operating in Muncie.
The Richmond School Furniture Company was founded by a Quaker attorney named William Foulke Spencer in Richmond, Indiana in 1892. It made school desks, bookcases, benches, chalkboards, etc. (Spencer had formerly partnered with another furniture company that was destroyed by fire.) At the same time he formed the American Lawn Mower Company and the two businesses shared facilities. The companies moved to Muncie in 1902 . The company stayed in business until the mid 20th century.
