George Epp chartered the Epp Furniture Company in 1921 with $350,000 in capital.
George L. Epp was president and treasurer of the Epp Furniture Co. in 1922. Edward M. Epp was vice-president, Arthur D. Epp was secretary. The store sold furniture, carpets, stoves and furnaces.
In 1967, Epp Furniture was run by Robert Taft, president and treasurer; Arthur Meyer, vice-president; James Daly, vice-president merchandising; Elizabeth Taft, secretary. The store sold furniture and floor coverings. It also offered an interior decorating service.
Elizabeth Taft was the daughter of Epp Furniture founder George L. Epp. She married Robert Taft in March of 1944. So, by studying the genealogy of the Epp family, we learn that this furniture company was a two-generation business venture.
