Millspaugh Furniture

At 17 years old, Theron L. Millspaugh began learning the art of fashioning rough wood into beautiful pieces of furniture.

Theron, “T.L.” to his friends, was no stranger to hard work, having been born on a farm in pastoral Montgomery. His employer, furniture maker John Woolsey, was impressed by T.L.’s energy and willingness to work long hours to satisfy his customers. When Woolsey passed away, T.L. decided to carry on his legacy by purchasing the business from his wife.

The business quickly outgrew its tiny space, so T.L. decided to erect a storefront befitting its success. The resulting three-story brick building, a staple of Walden’s Main Street, remains our main store today.

The business continued to grow, and the storefront grew with it. In 1895, T.L. installed a dumbwaiter that could transport furniture between the three floors of the store. We still use the dumbwaiter for that same purpose, over 160 years later!

Then, in 1901, T.L. connected the building with the storefront next door, creating the largest store in Orange County! T.L. and the six generations after him have built Millspaugh Furniture on customer satisfaction and business honesty.

We’re no longer the largest store in the county, but we have continued our steady growth by adding a location in Poughkeepsie. Each store retains the charm and warmth we have always been known for. We love our customers and look forward to many more generations serving the Hudson Valley.


Now in its 6th generation of family ownership, Millspaugh Furniture has been helping families create memories since 1858. With two locations in the region and unmatched delivery service, Millspaugh Furniture stores are the quality choice for the Hudson Valley. T.L. Millspaugh made furniture to last generations and all of our current manufacturers hold that same ideal.
