Who was Noah Merrill?
Noah Merrill in 1854 paired with younger brother Spencer to form N.M. & S.W. Mathews,
a sash and blinds factory. Joined in 1860 by Sanford Mathews, Mathews Company (the foundation of what would become Mathews Brothers in 1870) took root. The three brothers ran the family business as partners for close to 30 years. Noah was known for his compassion, kindness, and benevolence; and was the only brother to serve in a position of public trust.
We're honored to name this generous product line for one of our founding fathers,
or brother as it is.
