House of Webster started in 1934 by Roy and Evelynn Webster in Arkansas. Roy had a newspaper route that covered 125 miles, he sold cakes, pies and other baked goods made by Evelynn. By 1941 the baked goods were being sold by freight companies as employee gifts during the holidays. The bakery closed in the 1950’s to concentrate on the jams and jellies business. By the 1970’s they decided to capitalize on this trend and expanded their gift business. They added other food items like: biscuit mixes, ham, and candies as well as including ceramics and other kitchen items to make their gifts more attractive. In the 1990’s House of Webster was a nationally recognized name for their jams and jellies and were sold at specialty grocery stores, gift shops, even hardware stores and restaurants. Roy died in 1994 but the company continues today, run by his son Dale who is President and CEO, and they continue to make great gifts and delicious products and many unique gourmet foods.
Today their ceramics are crafted at House of Webster Ceramics in Eastland, Texas. Research shows that most of the House of Webster ceramics started being made in Eastland TX after 1954 when House of Webster bought the Horton Ceramics building (re-named House of Websters Ceramics) in Eastland, TX, that is why you find many House of Webster items stamped “Eastland, TX” and others “Rogers, AR”.
