Established in 1887, Northampton Lumber Company is the oldest building supply store still in operation on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The business has evolved and changed with the times to meet its customers needs and remains a mainstay in the community.
Originally, the company included its own steam driven sawmill. Timber was hauled in by teams of mules to be milled on site. Throughout the 20th century, the company performed a multitude of services. Northampton Lumber manufactured wooden barrels and crates on premises to pack and ship produce, hardware and a variety of other goods. After WWII, the store sold a full line of GE appliances. From the mid-60's to 1981, Northampton Lumber Company was a Boston Whaler boat dealer, including a sales and service center for Mercury outboard motors.
Today the company carries on its tradition of exceptional service, providing a full line of building materials, paint, and hardware.
Northampton Lumber is a True Value dealer stocking specialty woods, windows, doors and more.
