McCONNELLSVILLE – Harden Furniture in McConnellsville was sold to an Illinois investment company this week, and the company has since suspended its operations. The parking lot once filled with cars from 175 employees now sits empty.

A WARN Act Notice was issued, meaning the New York State Department of Labor was put on alert that the company would be closing. The move could be temporary, but there’s no word on when production could resume.

Harden Furniture, which has been located in Oneida County since 1844, is synonymous with American history. Some pieces of furniture made by the company are currently in the White House.
