Who Was Spencer Walcott?

Spencer Walcott Mathews is regarded as the founding “brother”
of Mathews Brothers. In 1854, as part owner of a sash and blinds factory in
Belfast, Maine, Spencer was joined by his brother Noah. The two formed
N.M. & S.W. Mathews. Six years later, younger brother Sanford came aboard
and they changed the name to Mathews & Company. In 1873, the name you
know us by, Mathews Brothers, became a staple of Belfast’s industry.
Spencer was known for his attention to detail and his love for his company

and community.

Today, we apply those same principles and that’s why we’re proud to name
this product family after Spencer Walcott Mathews.
