The Horse and Buggy Days
Two brothers, William and August Timpte arrived in the Mile High City sometime around 1880, just a few years after Colorado became the 38th state of the union. Trained in their father's blacksmithing shop, the Timpte boys first went to work for the railroad in the booming, young frontier town. As Denver grew, so did its transportation needs, and William and August Timpte set up separate companies in 1884. The August Timpte Wagon and Carriage Works and the Wm. Timpte Carriage Works were soon busy supplying and repairing delivery wagons, buggies and carriages.
After a few years running separate operations, the brothers decided to merge their two shops into one company, The Timpte Brothers Wagon Company. The new operation was established in 1891 and moved to a 12,500 square foot plant at 2300 Market Street in Denver where they remained for the next 50 years. Timpte Brothers became the largest vehicle supplier in the Mountain states, and was busy designing and manufacturing buggies, carriages, light spring wagons for mining, commerce and local delivery, and heavy brewery wagons. After over 30 years of building their young company the founders, William and August Timpte, retired. Their sons, T.C. 'Tony' Timpte and C.A. 'Clem' Timpte took over in 1916 to enter the beginnings of the age of motorized transport.
