W. W. Kimball Organ Company

W. W. Kimball Organ

This is just about all the information that’s survived the passing of time on the Kimball company.

The Company was first located on the S.W. corner of Wabash Ave. and Jackson Blvd., Chicago, IL., and later the factory was at Rockwell and 26th Streets.

The company was founded by William Wallace Kimball in 1857 as an organ and piano retailer in Chicago.

He built up an immense business as a jobber under the leadership of Edwin Stapleton Conway.

They began manufacturing organs in 1881 and later pianos. They discontinued reed organ production in 1922.

They also made organs for others such as Bentley, Goggin, Thiery, J.V. Watson, Pacific Queen, Great Western and probably Lundell Olson. Still survives as Kimball International, located in Jasper, Indiana.
