So what is a Hoosier Cabinet anyway? A true farmhouse piece for any country kitchen is the Hoosier Cabinet and has become a highly sought-after antique. The Hoosier Manufacturing Company was founded in the late 1800's in Indiana. Their design of taking a baker's cabinet into a compact design became very popular. Hoosier Cabinets were mostly sold between 1900 and 1930's and believed to be invented by J.S. McQuinn in 1899. Most cabinets had numerous drawers and doors including racks and large bins for storing flour and sugar.
