Fresh look for American Hardware

T he American Hardware on Quaker Street is getting a makeover.

Owners David Linendoll and Kyle Hunter thought the store looked a little rundown, and rather than repainting it they decided to opt for a more permanent fix.

“We had been debating for a few years; the siding was pretty bad,” Linendoll said. So contractor Tim Makepeace completely stripped off the old siding down to the sheeting boards and will soon begin putting on new vinyl siding.

The building, which is over a century old, was a one-story glove factory in 1913. In 1930, Shirt Manufacturers Loewy and Sons took the building over and expanded it. Since then it was J and J Lingerie, which employed 90 women at one point, Linendoll said.

Then, in 1994, Linendoll and Hunter opened the building as a hardware store. They’ve made some changes over the years, such as adding thermal pane windows. And along with the current project they will be removing and covering every other set of large, upstairs windows, “to make it more energy efficient,” Linendoll said.

He said the siding arrived last week and was hoping the project would be complete by Labor Day weekend.
