Salvage Barn Hours have changed!

We are now open Tuesday - Saturday 9am to 5pm and Sundays by appointment!




Who We Are


The Salvage Barn, operated by Friends of Historic Preservation, preserves historic architectural items and keeps priceless materials out of the landfill. It serves as a source for homeowners to find historically appropriate and ecologically friendly parts.



The Salvage Barn runs entirely on donations. If you have items that are 50 years or older that you no longer need, please consider bringing them to the Barn, rather than tossing them in the landfill. Donations are tax-deductible.

 Craft Your Environment


Craft Your Environment will showcase the creations of artists and crafters whose work aligns with the Salvage Barn’s mission of keeping valuable materials out of the landfill. Scheduled the Sunday after Earth Day, this event will take place at the East Side Recycling Center (ESRC).
