Taylor Chair Company
The Taylor Chair Co. Benjamin Fitch started making split-bottom chairs in 1816 at his cabin at the corner of what is now Libby and Warrensville Center Roads in Bedford Township, now part of Maple Heights. One of the young men working for Benjamin Fitch was William O. Taylor. In 1841 he married Mr. Fitch”s daughter, Harriet. By the mid-1840″s William Taylor had taken over active management of the company, although Benjamin Fitch remained involved in applying his skills to production methods and tools. Late in the 1840″s the company became known as the W. O. Taylor factory. After an 1850 fire in the sheds on Libby Road, Mr. Taylor moved his factory to its present location on Taylor Street at the end of Willis Street. In 1871 W. O. Taylor”s son, Vincent A. Taylor took over the active management of the company, and the name was changed to W. O. Taylor and Son.
