OLD CARRIAGE WORKS ANOTHER CASUALTY OF THE NEW CENTURY  -- A master of the wagon and carriage-making craft, Samuel Shreffler, founder of the Shreffler Carriage works, died with the belief that the automobile would never take the place of "Old Dobbin" and the buggy.  The Shreffler Carriage Works was an outstanding example of the change in industry as the result of the new mechanical age that swept in with the new century.  Mr. Shreffler started his manufacture in 1872 in an old defunct woolen mill he purchased. The '80's found the carriage works at the height of its activity on the banks of the Blackfork on Whitney avenue where part of the remodeled building still stands.  Thirty-five mechanics worked in that factory, turning out wagons and carriages.  The Shreffler wagons were productions of pride and skill in craftsmanship that ran many years and gained a wide reputation.  The Shreffler industry continued until 1937, but in the later years under the management of two sons, Robert and Halmer.  Robert is now employed with the local U. S. post office and Hal, as he is better known, operates the Castamba theater.  As the new century grew out of its infancy, a new industry sprang up in the old Shreffler works.  It was a natural transition from the buggy to the horseless carriage and soon there rose up an auto repair establishment.  There was a blacksmithing department to do structural auto work and other departments to look after general auto trim and furniture upholstery.  Later on, the Cline Body Repair and Paint shop occupied the building."

Cockley ever made, surpassing his sale of the Shelby mill and at the tube works.  The local rib factory has operated at a loss from the start and six rib factories in the nation have been consolidated by the national company.  17,000 dozen ribs are used a week and the six factories have a combined capacity of 35,000.  Republished from 7 Aug 1901 Daily Globe.
