When you buy furniture, you’re buying a piece of history – your history, stories yet to be told of the memories you’ll make in your home.
No one understands the connection between furniture and history better than Gladhill Furniture, a family-owned business in the heart of Middletown, Maryland.
Woodrow Wilson was President and women didn’t have the right to vote when Calvin T. K. and Lola Gladhill began selling furniture, cook stoves, aluminum ware, jewelry, buggies, wagons and carriages in nearby Myersville, Maryland. They moved to the present location at 10 Walnut Street in Middletown in 1915, into the Schlosser Tannery building which was razed when the present structure was built in 1929.
During the 1920s, the Gladhills employed local cabinet makers to fashion custom furniture in solid walnut and cherry woods – pieces which are still found in some of the finest homes in Frederick County.
When you buy from Gladhill, you will enjoy the well-rounded perspective of a company that has grown from a modest furniture shop with three employees and a horse-drawn wagon for furniture delivery to a five-story showroom featuring the nation’s most respected furniture brands that perfectly capture today’s modern trends in home interior design. To this day, the Design Consultants at Gladhill Furniture have maintained their commitment to providing you with beautiful furniture, enduring quality and legendary customer service.
Gladhill has been a part of your friends’ lives for nearly a century. You may have enjoyed our furniture with your parents and grandparents. And because our commitment to quality is unmatched, you can rest easy knowing your Gladhill purchase will be around for generations to come.
Fine furniture is the backdrop for your family’s memories. The chair where Grandma holds a newborn baby. The table where friends gather for dinner. The bedroom where bedtime stories come to life.
