Our family of “hatters” started in Reading, PA in the 1700s as our country prepared to secure its freedom in the Revolutionary War. Fathers taught sons, who taught their sons…and after moving to Adamstown in the late 1700s, our direct descendants had a stake in several hat companies. They were pioneers in harnessing steam power for wool felt hat manufacturing. In 1912 the F&M Hat Company was incorporated in Denver, PA, just a few miles west of Adamstown. Our story is genuine history. Authentic history. Same last name history. Ours is a documented history and we’re proud of it.
