Why the Name Kercheval? We named this key chain to pay tribute to a number of members of the Kercheval family who made a positive impact on those living in Detroit. Benjamin Kercheval (1793-1855), was an American officer in the War of 1812. His daughter, Mary Kercheval, married Moses W. Field, who operated the Detroit Glass Works and the Detroit Hoop Manufacturing company. In tandem with her husband, they were instrumental in establishing the Michigan State Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and helped create state laws relating to the humane treatment of animals. They helped establish an art museum in Detroit, and pushed to establish public drinking fountains in Detroit in 1871. 

So bring a piece of impact and history wherever you go, with the Kercheval Key Chain by Pingree Detroit.

Love the Products, Hate the Delivery Time

Love the product. Having hung out in Pingree Park I really appreciate these keepsakes (coasters and key chain). I'll periodically check the site and look for things to purchase. The thing that got me was the deliver time. Six weeks is too long. Please try to improve here.

Thanks for your honesty and business. We are really happy you're happy with your Pingree keepsakes. Thanks for your patience as our small team handmade over 1,000 orders over the course of 3 weeks working 6 and 7 days a week since our first National News piece went live. We are grateful for the overwhelming support and usually ship within 48 hours.
