Our History

Since 1891 our family has been serving your family in Clarkfield and the surrounding area.

Jens H. Lynner established a furniture-making shop alongside his father-in-law C. J. Rognstad's harness shop. As the area's population grew and demands increased, furniture and caskets were mass produced elsewhere. We have continued and grown through the changing times because of you and your family's patronage.

We sincerely thank each of you for your business, your continued support, and your friendship. To God be the glory for these 117 years!
