|Artifact Comment||"Folgers's Coffee Puzzle, this is a replica of Folger's coffee container ca. 1931." (Jim Rock)|
|Industry Comment||Folger's Coffees was founded in 1850 by William Bovee. Initially, it was called Pioneer Steam and Spice Mills and Jim Folger was employed as a carpenter. Three years later Folger was a salesman for the company, which had since changed to Bovee and Marden. In 1859 Bovee sold his shares to Folger, changing the firm's name to Marden and Folger. Folger also bought out Marden and somewhere between 1872 and 1874 he changed the name to J.F. Folger and Co. By 1903, the company's coffee blends were being sold in cans.|
