This is an old thread, but it's good to see that the revived Hughes Company has lasted at least 10 years -- @kfuller yours appears to be a 2019 model.

Any updates on the re-opening? I have two Hughes Dulcimers and would like to get some additional information about them if possible.

That's great news! I hope the quality will remain. Surely it will...

As many of you know HughesDulcimer Co out of Denver, was owned by the legendary Hughes brothers Virgil and Norman, who made dulcimers and dulcimer kits for many many years. Original Hughes instruments and kit instruments are fairly common on Ebay and can often be had for very little money. Not particularly pretty by modern standards, perhaps, but the fretboards were very accurate and the instruments were emminently playable.

I just read on ED that Hughes Dulcimer company is being re-vitalized by a new person, with the assistance of Norman Hughes. Let's hear it for the return of a classic!
