Our Story


Kelley Ironworks began in 1941 when Tony Usedly began to turn his hobby into a retirement business. In 1957, Mr. Usedly hired an apprentice, Doug Kelley, who was 14 years old at the time. In 1970, Mr. Usedly sold the shop to Doug Kelley who then changed the name to Kelley’s Ornamental Iron.

Over time, Doug’s son Travis took an interest in the business. Father and son worked together for years until a sudden illness took Doug’s life— leaving Travis at the helm. To grow the business, Travis teamed up with Breck Nelson in 1996 and the company became Kelley Ornamental Iron.

Kelley produces not only the best ironwork available locally, but some of the best work available anywhere in the country. We feel that Tony and Doug would be proud of the work we do for we know they forged the standard by which we build.
