From 1974 until 2004, Bill Vernon Studios produced a wide variety of collectible figurines, gifts, and home decor products. The most popular of these collectibles were The Shade Tree Cowboys and The Series of Evolution. Our collectibles were all MADE IN THE USA. We started out in Gainesville, Florida, and then we moved to Franklin, North Carolina.
On May 29, 1998, Bill Vernon Studios in Franklin was destroyed by a fire. So many sculptures, the molds, and almost all records were lost. We did rebuild, but on a much smaller scale. On 2004, all Bill Vernon sculptures were retired.
