History Salvaged and HistoryPens.com, LLC (HS) began with a simple goal: the reclamation, salvaging and repurposing of wood and other natural materials from historic sites throughout the United States that would otherwise be discarded and lost to history.
HS works primarily with wood and timbers removed from historical buildings and sites during the renovation of existing structures as well as with trees and branches that have fallen in storms, or are removed for safety reasons or expanded construction.
HS offers a historically significant, revenue producing alternative to support the ongoing operation of its client historical sites rather than the discarding and destruction of these limited, one of a kind resources, thus preserving not only history, but the integrity of the environment through the repurposing of these materials. Additionally, HS has become a resource that supports Museums, Fraternal Organizations, Libraries and private collections have utilized to monetize redundant, deteriorating and other small pieces in there collections that if not repurposed would be lost to history.
HS, provides clients a way to directly benefit from our unique model of giving these otherwise wasted resources new life by repurposing materials from historically significant structures and sites and realizing incremental revenue through HS’s donations, acquisition and/or royalty programs. Although HS’s initial creations were limited to fine writing instruments, HS has developed a group of artists, craftsmen, gold and silversmith’s, artisans and others and expanded our Witness Wood® product offering to include picture frames, bottle stoppers, ornaments, magnets, bookmarks, furniture, artwork and other memorabilia.
