Shoe Manufacturers

—1897-1922 —

Johnson Bros. & Co. incorporated as a wholesale, retail, and custom workshop in 1897 with John R. Cook, president; Andrew F. Johnson, vice-president; and George W. Johnson, secretary-treasurer. George Johnson was a shoemaker by 1880. The business opened in a two-story building on Main Street but later moved into a brick building on Oakdale Road, uphill from the rail depot and across from the Johnson brothers' homes. The company was best known for the 'Johnson brogan' with copper toes.
