The Steger Piano Company was established in 1879 by John V.
Steger. In 1892 the company was incorporated as The Steger & Sons
Piano Manufacturing Company. John Steger left Chicago and founded the
nearby town of Steger, Illinois, in order to establish the Steger piano factory
there. Steger & Sons was known for building very good pianos, and the firm
prospered for several decades.
Steger & Sons produced pianos under the brand names of “Steger &
Company”, “Mellostrello”, “Crest”, “Thompson“, “Singer“, and “Artemis,” and
is one of the few American manufacturers to survive the Great Depression
without being absorbed into a larger conglomerate likely due to a
combination of the quality of their products, coupled with the large volume
of diverse piano lines they manufactured. The factory did eventually close
its doors in 1959, after an 80-year run.
