From the Bruce Ontario Museum website - "The Hepworth Manufacturing Company was organized in 1898 by a group of local businessmen to link together a number of small saw mills on the site of the Charles Withun sawmill. Charles Withun had been employed at Knechtel Furniture of Hanover. Bedroom suites, sideboards, tables and game boards were produced.
At some point, the name changed to Hepworth Furniture Company.
The Company employed a large number of people in Hepworth, until they moved to Southampton in 1937. The company specialized in a line of inexpensive bedroom and dinette furniture. It closed in 1974."
