From humble beginnings in the logging and coal mining regions of West Virginia Richard Ketterman and Neysa Saville met while they were both battling tuberculosis. Richard learned to repair clocks and watches while on his back in a body cast. He also started a greeting card business while in the hospital. The Ketterman’s began their business with the simple philosophy that if you give people friendly service and fair prices the business would succeed. And it has, and continues in the tradition it started. Dan & Tammi Ketterman operate the Ketterman’s in Leesburg with the same philosophy with which it began. If you’ve never visited us please stop by. If you’re already a Ketterman’s customer thanks for being part of the family.
