100 Years of Paramount – #1

Paramount Records was founded in 1917 by the Wisconsin Chair Company. This year will mark the 100th anniversary and will be celebrated as such at the annual Paramount Music Festival over Labor Day weekend! With pure excitement for this event, the team intends to post information related to Paramount Records and it’s history on a weekly basis. We hope you enjoy these fun facts and artifacts, while sharing back to us!
