Explore Bollman’s Small Batch Limited Edition Hats
When George Bollman rented an old whiskey distillery on Main Street in Adamstown on July 1, 1868, to make hats, he was already a competent hat maker. In those early days in his shop, he worked with tools not powered by electricity. The labor-intensive hat-making process made for small batches of finished products.
Three years and modest success led Bollman to purchase land across the street for a larger factory. On that land stood a barn built in 1809, the year of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. That barn was used to stall the horse that transported Bollman hats to the railroad before automobiles revolutionized the shipping industry.

The old Bollman barn still stands. Bollman hats are still made. We are still determined to fashion the best men's and women's limited edition caps that fit our customers perfectly. Everything else has changed. In honor of George and those modest early times 150 years ago, we are proud to introduce the Bollman Small Batch Hat Collection.
