Kimball Piano History
The Kimball Company started making reed organs in 1877 in Chicago, Illinois, and by 1887 expanded to include pianos in the massive factory. In 1961 the company was moved to Indiana until 1996, when the last Kimball grand rolled off the production line. In fact, from 1922 until the mid 1960's the Kimball company grew to be the top ranked piano maker in the world!
The original Kimball company still exists today, however no longer makes pianos, but rather specializes in furniture. The Kimball pianos of today are now solely made in Asia under new ownership.
