This website is a work in progress. We have over 100 years to add to the site. We have access to the Furst-McNess Company’s archives and continue to add to our collection of historical finds. So come back often, we’ll be adding more pictures, more products, and more stories to go with them as time goes on.

The section on “The McNess Man” has its own picture gallery.

And if you have a story to share, please contact us! We are going to be adding a section on past salespeople, so if you or someone you know used to sell McNess products, please let us know!

For now, here are some pictures from our collection and the archives.

The F.W. McNess website is provided entirely to share interesting, historical information. Traditional McNess home products are still available today, visit to learn more.
