"This cabinet was constructed on site in Hamilton County, Noblesville Indiana USA." We think it was built in the 1880 period by Wooten Desk Co. Its intended use was to store documents which were kept at the Hamilton County Court House. It originally contained "pigeon holes" or "honeycomb compartments" into which folded or rolled legal documents were indexed and stored. (This was before file cabinets and file folders were in common use.)

It was was used for this purpose until the 1960s, at which time I purchased it. It was shipped to Indianapolis to the Lyon Lumber Co. where it was converted for the storage of a "Four Up" Set of Dress Horse Harness. At Lyon the "pigeon holes" were removed. A new back, a solid walnut base, and walnut horse collar, saddle and bridle hanging fixtures were added." -- Bob Arbuckle
