During the late 1800's and early 1900's, the Kintner House was frequently occupied by traveling salesmen, or "Drummers", as they were called at the time. The drummers kept the local stores supplied with merchandise. Before 1883, the drummers, who usually traveled by riverboat, would arrive in Corydon by stagecoach. After 1883, most drummers came in on the local train. They carried trunks or "drums" full of merchandise. After establishing headquarters in the Kintner House, they would set out their wares for the merchants to view. Orders were placed for appropriate items which were delivered at a later date. The drummers often hired a horse and carriage to call on stores throughout the county.
