114 East Main, Kalamazoo, MI The "Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Manufacturing Co, Ltd." was established in 1902.[1] This building, said to be infested with cockroaches, was probably the former Witmer Bakery.[3]

225 Parsons St, Kalamazoo, MI, 49007 Also located next to railroad tracks, this facility had major expansions in 1945, 1950, and 1960.[6] Various brands were produced there, including Gibson, Epiphone, (1957–1970)[7][8] and Kalamazoo. During the depression of the 1930s, children's toys were produced there, and during WW2 it produced materials to support the war effort in addition to producing guitars.[9] Between 1974 and 1984 Gibson moved its manufacturing out of this facility to Tennessee. Most of this move happened in 1974, leaving only acoustic and some semi-acoustic production for this plant.[10] In 1985, Heritage Guitars began production, renting part of this facility.[11]
