Making homes beautiful has been in our blood for more than a century.

The Hyde Park Lumber & Design Center – founded in 1902 by the former governor of Ohio, Myers Y. Cooper – has been a pivotal part of Cincinnati history. We supplied rowboats during the flood of 1937 and built ammo boxes for World War II. But we’re best known for what we continue to do today – supplying top quality interior millwork, doors, cabinets and designer hardware for thousands of newly built and remodeled homes in Greater Cincinnati.

A look back at Hyde Park Lumber

The ownership and operation of our company proudly remains in our founder’s family today, with Mike Judy – Myers Cooper’s great-grandson – at the helm.

“My great-grandfather set a standard of excellence way back in 1902 that I am determined to protect and maintain here at The Hyde Park Lumber & Design Center. I invite you stop by and see for yourself how our commitment to excellence and the grand tradition of our past can take a hand in your future.”

-Mike Judy, President
