The wood of Southend Reclaimed that finds its way into new homes and businesses today has a story that spans hundreds of years. Trees that began growing during the time of Columbus were used to construct the mills and factories that formed the backbone of this nation a century ago. Now, many of these structures stand vacant. Southend Reclaimed searches for these buildings and meticulously reclaims the old-growth wood and vintage brick found there so that these materials, and history, can live on.
