History of Marysville Hardware
Marysville Hardware started in 1910 in an Independent Order of Odd Fellows Hall (IOOF) owned building adjacent to the B&O Railroad in Marysville, Indiana. It was operated under the name of G.C. Bussey and Son. Sometime in the late 9120's or early 30's it was taken over by the son, Perry Bussey and became Bussey Hardware. Besides basic hardware for the farmers, items sold included burial coffins, John Deere and New Idea Farm Equipment, coal for heating, horse collars and it even had a barber shop in the back of the store. 'Gulf' Gasoline for automobiles was first added in 1921. Sometime in the early 1940's John Deere Equipment was dropped from the offerings.

In November, 1945, Robert Righthouse, who had married a daughter (Leone) of Perry Bussey, returned from World War II and bought into the business. It then became Marysville Hardware. Mr. Bussey continued in the business until he sold it in 1952 to Robert Righthouse. The business was operated by Robert and his wife Leone.

In the 1950's the business sold basic hardware, coal, gasoline, LP gas, building supplies, lawn and garden equipment and New Idea equipment. By the late 1960's coal, New Idea equipment and most building supplies had been dropped from their inventory.

In 1969 the store was moved to a new building at its present location.

In 1970 J.R. Righthouse, the son of Robert and Leone Righthouse, and his wife Sue returned to Marysville and bought into the family business. Robert Righthouse sold his share of the business to J.R. and Sue in the mid 1980's. In 1987 Marysville Hardware became a True Value Store. Up until the passing of J.R. Righthouse Jr. on February 28, 2014 the business sold basic hardware, plumbing, paint, lawn and garden equipment, including Gravely and Stihl products. Marysville Hardware was also an authorized service center for Gravely, Stihl, Briggs and Stratton, Tecumseh and several other mower and engine manufacturers.

Marysville Hardware has always been the friendly store where help was just around the corner!
