Rich with history, Tobacco-stained Pine hardwood flooring is reclaimed from old tobacco drying barns. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, many farmers who lived in the fertile valleys of Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna River and Allegheny Mountains grew tobacco. Using a mixture of pine species as siding, floor joists and roof rafters, they constructed barns for drying tobacco – a unique process that gave what we call tobacco pine its heavily mixed color and character (without odor). This unique appearance of deep, rich shades of brown is intermingled with the wood’s original honey color. Naturally weathered and dark, this wood will add warmth to a more rustic décor.
