McElheney Hardware was opened in 1911, at 1505 Adams Street by William McElheney. The business was moved to 1430 Adams Street in 1950. In 1956 Robert McElheney purchased the business from his father and continued to operate it at this location. Robert’s son William joined the business in 1957 and began to grow the locksmith portion. In 1972 William purchased the business from his father and continues to operate it today. William moved the business to 1301 Adams Street in 1976 and began to focus more on locksmithing. The hardware store was closed in the mid 1980’s and the company name was changed to McElheney Locksmiths, Inc. William decided early on to pursue education in the locksmith field. He achieved the status of Certified Master Locksmith in 1988. This certification is achieved through a comprehensive series of classes and testing administered by the Associated Locksmiths of America.
