1930s

W.A. HITT Decorating Co. was founded as a small, family-owned business in Warren and Myrtle Hitt’s home in Arlington, Virginia. Their first job was an enclosed porch at a residence in Falls Church, Virginia. The rest, as they say, was history. By 1939, the company earned its first $100,000 and grew to 20 employees.

1940s
