Long Description:
The Columbus Washboard Company was originally founded in Columbus Ohio in 1895. By the 1970's they were the only remaining washboard company in the United States. Eventually, in 1999, the factory was moved to its current home in Logan, Ohio.

The Columbus Washboard Company still produces washboards today. Everything from decorative boards, to musical boards, and functional boards are produced in house. Every year the town of Logan holds a Washboard Festival. The factory is also open for tours as well.
