We were greeted with a smile and we go to tour by ourselves. They had a ton of equipment from previous years. It was so much fun to see how washboards where and are made. You can also donate money for them to send washboards...More

They make wash boards. Fun to watch them make them. Bought a couple as souvenirs. If you are near by definitely stop in. Just don't plan on staying long, not really a lot to see.

Took a tour of the factory with Lisa, about 45 minutes. She showed us the machinery and gave us an idea of how it works. Hard to believe there is still a market for this. Sales are not what they were so many years ago,...More

Really enjoyed this tour and even bought a wash board for decorative use. Grew up locally but had never been on tour and it was worth the time. Great little gift shop.

The Columbus Washboard Company keeps up a tradition by being the last remaining washboard company in the country. Staffed by only four people (an office manager, a person at the front desk, and two workers who build the washboards), this place is a delightful place...More

What a fun discovery. This is the last of its kind in America and the self-guided tour of the factory floor is at once entertaining, educational and nostalgic. The staff that assembles hundreds of washboards are outgoing and happy to show you how they do...More

Four dedicated people keep this very busy little "made in the U.S.A." company going. One of the oldest companies in the country, "pet friendly" Columbus Washboard ships their products all over the world, and is still basically using the original equipment. It was quite interesting...More

A look back into days gone by. A product that is still made by hand in the U.S.A. Something that my grandmother's used and it still has a place today. The tour was very informative and interesting.

They didn't have a sign up but the owner was there and offered us the opportunity to go back on our own and look around! It's a real gem! I did buy a musical washboard as I play the piano!
