My Office Furniture History.
I have two pieces of furniture from the old Washington County Hospital (The facility is no more - the new facility is called Meritus). The first one is an ole table that served as a platform for the Chapel for the Bible and candles ... the other is an old podium (Pulpit) from Pangborn Hall. It was donated in the memory of Carl H. Brandt. (1888-1941) So I did alittle history and found out there was a Brandt Furniture factory founded in 1901 ...(at one time had several hundred people employed there) Now serves as offices for a lawyer (Groh) and the rest remains empty. I'm told Carl's father founded Brandt.
