Welcome to Legacy Architectural Salvage, 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 910.444.1751 to arrange drop off of donations.

Legacy Architectural Salvage announces a special fundraising sale of hardware, doors, windows, shutters, tongue and groove wood boards and siding from the motion picture production of Bolden.  Items are suitable for artistic use, and not intended for functional applications.

Funds raised, from the sale, will support the preservation programs of the Historic Wilmington Foundation, including Legacy Architectural Salvage.  

Directed by Daniel Pritzker and filmed in WILMINGTON, “Bolden” is about Charles “Buddy” Bolden, a New Orleans cornet player and legendary jazz musician in the early 1900s. Special thanks to King Bolden, LLL for the items donated to the Historic Wilmington Foundation!
