Reclaiming the c.1875 Elizabeth Mill | Warwick, RI

In 1875, when Oliver Payson Fuller wrote History of Warwick, he commented, "To the east of Pontiac, a couple of miles on the Stonington railroad,a thriving little village has sprung up with the past ten years, in connection with the establishment of a new branch of industry."

He was referring to Hill's Grove, an area that was then becoming important as the home of the Rhode Island Malleable Iron Works, established by Thomas Jefferson Hill in 1867. Over the course of the next century, Hillsgrove (as it became known sometime during the 1880's) would become a major industrial hub of the area, and became more famous for the Elizabeth Mill, his 1875 steam-powered textile mill named in honor of his wife Elizabeth C. Kenyon of Warwick.

During the nineteenth century, the Elizabeth Mill manufactured fine yard thread and had 20,000 spindles operated by nearly 300 men, women, and sometimes children. In only a matter of a few years, the mill brought so much prosperity to the small village that it was necessary to build additional housing behind the mill and along Jefferson Boulevard, Hillsgrove's main street.


Today, much as it was over 150 years ago, the mill complex is at the center of Warwick's fast developing industrial revolution- and thanks to the Jarmak Corporation, the centuries-old historic timbers, decking, and flooring that once housed the workers and helped to build a wealthy and propersous local community, will be used to rebuild America's industrial centers once again.


The original surface of much of the well-worn maple flooring tells the story of a by-gone era of community prosperity and growth.

Arnie Jarmak has travelled the country in search of the finest reclaimed wood... and this time he found it right in his own back yard! We've been working for over a month now salvaging and shipping out truckloads of wood to developers and millwork companies across New England from the c.1875 Elizabeth Mill in Warwick,RI.

Here's what we have left:


  10" x 15" x 30-37' ANTIQUE HEART PINE TIMBERS






The historic building may be in pieces today, but it's legacy will live on as we help to rebuild America together! Click here to read more about this project and see what we're saving.

Schedule an appointment or order samples of this historic wood before it's all gone!

  Converse World HQ at Lovejoy Wharf | Boston, MA

Last week, we stopped by the new World Headquarters of Converse to see John Shipman, Workplace Design and Connectivity Director for Converse and Hurley at Nike, Inc. We wanted to see how our latest installation of Boston Harbor Oak was looking... turns out, it's looking fantastic! With just a few more weeks to go before they open their doors for good, we can't wait to see the finished product. And the views... don't get us started!

The wood Converse will use on their office walls, stair treads, and custom made conference tables was reclaimed from the original wooden pilings of Lovejoy Wharf. It made perfect sense to use this wood in the buildings and workspaces above.

Gather, a restaurant on the South Boston waterfront is located inside District Hall, a building that serves as a collaborative hub for the community. Our reclaimed wood is at the heart of a City of Boston initiative to transform the South Boston Waterfront into an urban environment that fosters innovation, collaboration and entrepreneurship.

We're not your typical reclaimed lumber company, and it's better that way...

Fancy downtown showroom? Nope.
Slick-talking, suit and tie salesmen? Uh-uh.
Whiz-bang brochures and flashy product catologues? Don't think so.

"Quality doesn't matter." -said no one ever.
