The prestigious Starr Piano Company was established in Richmond, Indiana in 1872 by founder James M. Starr. Starr was known for building very high quality instruments, and they enjoyed huge success well into the 20th Century. The Starr Piano Company manufactured and sold several lines of piano brand names including Richmond, Remington, Cumberland, Duchess, Royal, Minum and Trayser. The Starr Piano Company was one of the few American piano manufacturers to survive the Great Depression without being absorbed into a larger conglomerate, and they continued to produce pianos until about 1950.
