The year was 1900 and Sam Kirkpatrick has just opened Waco's first furniture store. In 1905, G.C. Witt and Connie Jones started Wott & Jones, Waco's second furniture store. These stores survived the great depression and the Waco tornado. Even though the tornado destroyed both buildings and all the merchandise. Both stores rebuilt in the old Waco Square, but in the 60s urban renewal required the demolition of those buildings.
Later in the 60s, R.A. Witt then owner of G.C. Witt & Sons Furniture purchased Kirkpatrick's store and combined the two names and consolidated the companies along with their huge customer bases. In 1986, Cleveland Witt and Robert Goldsmith as partners purchased the cooperation. In 2000, Mike Goldsmith, Troy Goldsmith, and Lee Bauman became partners in Kirckpatrick and Witt. In the early 1970s, Connie Whited became one of Waco's most recognizeable faces and vocies of TV and radio as the sales force behind Kirkpatrick and Witt Furniture, Today after 30 years of dedicationm she is still going strong. Connie invites all of her past customers as well as new customers to stop by for a visit.
