Pittsville Homes Closes

Pittsville Homes in Pittsville, WI has shuttered its doors after 40 years in business. Even their website is gone and the domain has been sold.

The company, located at 5094 Second Avenue in Pittsville, manufactured custom modular homes since 1974. When times were good, they could build up to 8 modules at a time had 60 employees.

Cornelius “Corny” Hoogesteger, a site builder, bought the plant in 1974 thinking he could build a better home using modular construction. At one time Pittsville Homes offered hundreds of floor plans and also manufactured custom homes.

No news yet as to why they closed down.
