Gene Beachy

In the mid-1800s, an Amish farmer named Manasses Hochstetler came to Indiana. As he cleared the land for his farm, he used the wood to build furniture for his family. He passed this skill on to his son Cornelius; Cornelius passed it on to his son Henry, and so on down the line. This rich heritage is the foundation for Manasses Henry Furniture Company, owned and operated by Gene Beachy, the great-great grandson of Manasses Hochstetler. Every piece is made from solid lumber construction. The finest northern hardwoods - oak, cherry, pine, maple, walnut and quarter sawn white oak- are harvested especially for this furniture.
