The Hudson Valley is known for its rich history, and its architecture is a crucial part of that. Antique wood is seeing a resurgence of popularity, and there are countless structures throughout the area that are being harvested for their unique antique woods.

Most of the older homes in the Hudson Valley were built with materials sourced from our local forests. This means you’re able to find a variety of woods with unique looks and character, with a diversity you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Some of the woods native to the area include:

  • Hemlock
  • Pine
  • Chestnut oak
  • Black Birch
  • Hickory
  • Sycamore
  • White spruce
  • And others

While some of these wood types are commonly used in modern flooring materials, they don’t have the same rich, authentic appearance. New woods look “new” — they lack the warmth and weathered texture that you’ll find with antique woods. Whether you want a rustic, wide-planked floor for your kitchen, or something highly textured with a warm patina for your living room, antique woods are the way to go.
