Originally opening in 1906, then becoming a premier horse racing destination in the 1930s, Rockingham Park was an important part of New Hampshire history.
During it's heyday, the track saw the likes of Seabiscuit, Brass Monkey, and even one of Bing Crosby's horses.
In the above photo, the Rockingham wood is repurposed in a private residence in Wellesley, Mass.
The wood is cut to utilize the old face of the boards.The ceiling boards are joists split in half, and the beams are wrapped. All of this wood is locally sourced and locally machined.
As the days of horseracing go by the wayside, and the Rockingham Park buildings are being removed, The Jarmak Corp contracted to purchase the 5000 boards that were used to make the horse stables.
It's a beautiful mix of natural pines, weathered in some places, gnawed on, or kicked by racehorses over the decades. It is a wonderful antiqued surface that we are happy to offer. Not only is it a piece of history, it is also reclaimed and sustainable.
