The Warren Piano Company can be traced all the way back to 1850 when A. A. Simmons and James E. Clough formed The Simmons & Clough Organ Company in Detroit, Michigan. George P. Warren replaced Simmons in 1874, changing the name of the firm to “Clough & Warren“.
In 1910, Mr. George P. Warren left his partnership in The Clough & Warren Piano Company of Detroit. Mr. Warren relocated to Warren, PA. and entered into partnership with F. J. Haggerty and Mr. T. E. Cook (both of The Bennett Piano Company) to form “The Warren Piano Company”. The Warren Piano Company built pianos under the names of “Warren Piano Company”, “Cook & Son Piano Company”, “Thomas Piano Company”. The Warren Piano Company ultimately absorbed the “Widdlefield Piano Company” name as well.
