Reynolds, Rodin C., was born in Steuben County, October 22, 1863. He is the son of Nathaniel Reynolds, who came to Troy in 1874 and entered the furniture business at 445 River Street. In 1886 his father retired from business, and he has taken charge of the business since.

In 1892 he leased the store in the McCarthy Building, Monument Square, formerly occupied by the I. Keith Furniture Co., and has since acquired nearly the entire building. The sales have increased from $20,000 annually to $175,000 in 1895. Mr Reynolds has over 10,000 feet of floor room in his establishment and has the largest stock of furniture and carpets in Northern New York. He has established branch stores in Cohoes [Albany County] and Greenwich [Washington County]. He belongs to Apollo Lodge F&AM, Read Steamer Co and the Trojan Wheelmen.
