On Saturday, April 4, 2015 members of the Hoke family came to the Creeger House to present the Thurmont Historical Society with a unique piece of furniture produced locally by their parent's Hoke Furniture Company.
This particular furniture piece, a Hoke Model 9600 Deluxe Night Stand was produced in 1981 at the factory located on the east end of Thurmont. It was finished in the then popular "Blanco" (white) with gold leaf highlights. Another piece of Hoke Furniture, a Thru-Dor crib from another donor, was received on the same day. The crib was of a unique design with a width that made it easy to roll from one room to another as the mother worked throughout the house. It could be also be quickly folded for transport in the automobiles of the time
Our mission is to foster and promote an interest in the history of Thurmont and its environs. To further this purpose we collect, classify and display the artifacts, photographs and other items of Thurmont's physical and cultural heritage.
