Place of Origin

Maker Burghardt & Sons

Maker Details Burghardt Sporting Goods has a deep and impressive history that spans over a century. Doing business in the Milwaukee area since the 1800's, Burghardt's is recognized as one of the oldest family owned and operated sporting goods stores in the nation. Charles Burghardt opened a small stationary and book store in downtown Milwaukee in 1881. As Milwaukee's population grew with the influx of immigrants from Germany and Poland, there was a demand for stationary and a new demand for school supplies.
