During the Industrial Revolution, wood was employed as the primary building material of the time. Most of these structures were built after the Civil War and before 1920. Long Leaf Pine was used primarily because of its strength, durability, and availability. Most of these pines were growing when the early settlers arrived and much of the lumber salvaged from these old buildings were from trees growing before the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE was signed. This material became vital in building factories, wharves, bridges, and homes. As time progressed, these structures were abandoned, but the building and materials stood the test of time.
Many of these old structures have been slated for demolition and headed for landfills. It is the passion and vision of Baker’s Creek to use the salvaged parts of these structures, breathing new life into these historic relics. Baker’s Creek uses beams, decking, and flooring from these antiquated structures to carefully recreate the beautiful and much sought after floors our ancestors worked and lived on.
