"Knickerbocker Mfg. Co. began in the spring of 2013. Every step of its creation is rooted in the idea of community. For some in the picture it meant a passing of the torch and for some it meant a carrying of the torch. No matter which side you were on, the goal was simple, continue that story, hold onto tradition for when tradition dies so does a piece of us. Let that story belong to all of us. Let it inspire others to build their own. Let it be the light at the end of our tunnel and let our creations live beyond our years. As long as the story is alive we all have something to be remembered by and to remember those; the ones who made and continue to make our community what it is".
