Once the largest employer in the city of Hoquiam, Washington, the Harbor Paper Mill opened its doors in 1929. After a couple of temporary shut downs, the company was reborn in 1993, headed up by a group of local families, dedicated to bringing jobs to the Grays Harbor area. Renamed Grays Harbor Paper, the new company switched to manufacturing recycled paper goods and soon became a leader in regional sustainability. Financial hardships led to Harbor Paper LLC acquiring the company in August of 2012. Again financial issues led to a mill closure, this time for good, in February 2012. From the demolition, The Lumber Baron is proud to offer a number of Large Reclaimed Fir Timbers.
Mostly 14×16 and 3×12, these large support beams have been laboriously denailed and are ready for a new beginning. Equipped with a wonderful patina, these beams are limited in use only by your imagination. Own a piece of Americana. These Large Reclaimed Fir Timbers make incredible stools, benches, or beams.
