Raleigh Reclaimed

In the 1950’s, tobacco barns were a huge part of the landscape in North Carolina.  About half million of them were scattered throughout the state.   Drying tobacco was  big business in those days.

Today that number has dwindled to 50,000.  Even in my area, I’ve seen more than a few crumble into themselves or die at the hand of a bulldozer.  And it makes me sad.

Thankfully, some of these historic structures are being reclaimed by artisans like Josh and Billy of Raleigh Reclaimed.  I stopped in on Tuesday with a client to pick out some beautiful wood for a home office and living room.   My clients will have a piece of history in their home, not to mention a very warm, cozy space to enjoy with their family and friends.
