Norris & Hyde
The Norris & Hyde Piano Company was originally established as “Norris & Company” by Albert F. Norris and John A. Norris in 1873. The firm was located in Neponset, Massachusetts. In the 1880s, Mr. Charles Fletcher joined the firm, and the firm was known for a short time as “Norris & Fletcher”. The firm was officially incorporated as Norris & Hyde in 1895. Norris & Hyde was known for building high quality pianos and organs throughout the 19th Century and early 20th Century.
By about 1910 the firm stopped production of organ manufacturing and increased their line of upright pianos and player pianos to meet the growing demand. Norris & Hyde was purchased by the Jacob Doll Piano Company in the late 1920’s, ultimately becoming absorbed into The National Piano Manufacturing Company of Boston. The Norris & Hyde name was discontinued during the Great Depression era.
