Legacy Architectural Salvage

When a building is unable to be saved, Legacy Architectural Salvage steps in to save irreplaceable 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 serves as the best-case option in a worst-case scenario.

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. 

A frequent destination for contractors, DIY-ers, and treasure hunters, Legacy Architectural Salvage is Wilmington’s retail source for historic windows, doors, flooring, and more. In doing our part to put discarded, pre-1960s pieces back into area homes, we’re helping to preserve and protect the irreplaceable. If character, charm, and history define your style, visit Legacy Architectural Salvage often to check out our ever-changing inventory!

Legacy also hosts free workshops, teaching home repair and maintenance. To view our list of upcoming workshops, click here
