The History of the Prugh Family
In August of 1852 Mr. Isaac Prugh began the Prugh Family business as a manufacturer of fine furniture, coffins, and cabinetry. The Prugh family became known for excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. In 1880, Isaac Prugh passed the family business on to his son, Burton Asbury Prugh. B.A. handed the family business down to his son, Norval Prugh in 1909. Norval passed the business to his son, Robert Burton Prugh Sr., who handed it down to his son, Robert Burton Prugh Jr.. Burton Jr. worked with his Dad starting in 1971. Burton Jr. passed the business to his daughter, Lindsay (Prugh) Fruehling, in 2015. Burton continues to be active in the business and enjoys working with his daughter and seeing the family business continue under her guidance . As one of Burlington's founding families and businesses, the Prugh family takes great pride in it's strong commitment to serving the people of the Burlington, West Burlington, and surrounding communities for six generations.
