True Temper Hardware Company dates back to 1808 when it began as “The Old Stone Shop” in Wallingford, Vermont. Alexander Miller, a blacksmith, manufactured hoes, axes, nails, etc in the shop made of marble from a nearby quarry. In the 1830’s, Lyman Batcheller and sons acquired the shop and began forging a variety of agricultural forks. In 1902, Batcheller & Sons joined 16 other forging companies to form The American Fork and Hoe Company, located in Cleveland, Ohio.
