Saving Pieces of Our Past

The Historic Wilmington Foundation works every day to keep historic buildings intact and in place. But when a structure is facing demolition, Legacy Architectural Salvage serves as the best-case option in a worst-case scenario. When a building is unable to be saved, Legacy steps in to save irreplaceable pieces of our past.

Our team of staff and volunteers deconstruct old buildings, salvaging wood, doors, windows, siding, and other architectural elements. These materials are then sold (at salvage prices!) to members of our community, who utilize them in restoration and rehabilitation projects. An operation of HWF, Legacy Architectural Salvage diverts tons of wood from the landfill, and places these salvaged elements right back into area homes, helping to preserve our region’s historic fabric.
