Columbus Washboard Company

The Columbus Washboard Co. is proud to be the last remaining manufacturer of genuine Washboards in the USA.  Our company was founded in 1895 in Columbus, OH and remained in the Grandview area until it was purchased by an investment group in Logan, OH in 1999.  The complete factory was moved to the old shoe factory in Logan just 50 miles south east of Columbus, in June of 1999.

We welcome tourists to our factory daily for an informal 30 minute tour.  We still have in our facility all of the old machinery and presses that have produced our washboards for 118 years.  During their walk back in time, guests find the old machinery fascinating. We can all be thankful that we no longer have to rely on doing our laundry the old fashioned way.

Our soldiers presently deployed overseas are learning how to do their laundry the old-fashioned way, we have sent over 4,500 washboards to Iraq and Afghanistan so far. We also include a full kit of laundry items, washtubs, clothes-line, clothes pins, soap and of course instructions are included in their packages. Judging by the wonderful letters we receive, our kits are very popular with the troops. View the Worlds largest Washboard attached to the building. 24'x 12'
