Abstract J. C. Spach Wagon Works, Inc., of Winston-Salem, N.C., was operated largely by members of the Spach family, possibly descendants of Adam Spach (1720-1801), an early Moravian settler in the area. Billed as "Manufacturers of the celebrated J. C. Spach Wagons," the Wagon Works were closely related to Unique Furniture Makers, a furniture manufacturing company also run by the Spach family. Account books, cash books, general ledgers, payroll books, and other financial volumes chiefly of J. C. Spach Wagon Works, Inc. Some of the volumes, particularly two ledgers covering the years 1926-1941 and 1946-1953, an account book with entries 1937-1946, and a trial balance book with entries 1942-1953, relate at least in part to Unique Furniture Makers. The volumes document operations of the firms and list the names of employees and creditors associated with them.
