Legacy Architectural Salvage

Welcome to Legacy Architectural Salvage (LAS), a project of Historic Wilmington Foundation!

At LAS you’re likely to find doors, windows, door knobs, fireplace mantels, newel posts, finials, sinks and more…but because the inventory comes in solely through donations, you’ll want to visit regularly to know what’s in-house that week. We welcome historic architectural element donations c.1960 and older. Donations to Legacy Architectural Salvage are tax-deductible! Call (910) 338-6443 for questions, to purchase something you’ve seen on our Facebook page, or arrange drop off of donations.

LAS Artist in Residence Program

To promote re-purposing and re-use of salvaged materials, LAS introduced the Artist in Residency Program to encourage burgeoning artists to create pieces using Legacy’s salvaged materials. Legacy artists use salvage, such as wood, hardware and other items, to create unique art that inspires others to re-imagine, re-use and re-purpose. Legacy Artists are provided a work space within the warehouse and encouraged to take risks and pursue projects that highlight the salvaged items donated from the Cape Fear Region. Their creations are offered for sale in Legacy.

Meet Alice Tapia

Local artist Alyce Tapia creates stained glass art of all kinds, using reclaimed materials whenever possible. Garden-themed items and Custom orders available.

By giving artists a venue to showcase their work, the public a chance to learn from these talented people and us all a new way help the environment and re-purpose these elements of our past, the Legacy Architectural Salvage Artist in Residence program is a win for the community!
