The Lanes were made up of farmers and contractors who’d built more than 30 miles of the Virginian railroad. They owned a cotton mill and purchased thousands of acres of land in Campbell County, Virginia. In the spring of 1912, John Lane purchased a defunct box factory at a bankruptcy auction. His son, Edward Hudson Lane, was tasked with the manufacturing of the cedar “hope” chests for which the Lane family would become known, even though the company was initially incorporated as the Standard Red Cedar Chest Company. The company prospered and applied mass-production methods to its cedar-chest manufacturing after the war and in 1922, rebranded as the Lane Company. In the 1950s, the family-owned company began to branch out into manufacturing tables, bedroom furniture and other various furnishings for the entire home. The brand’s mid-century furniture is highly sought after.
