A Brief History of Eastern White Pine

It started with a home. One of the first homes in America, in fact, built in Guilford, Connecticut, in 1637 for Henry Whitfield, a Puritan minister who fled religious persecution with his wife and children. Its floors were old growth Eastern White Pine, a species that had been growing for centuries when the first settlers landed. The softer wood of these stately trees were easy to saw into carrier beams, timbers for framing, doors, and yes, long flooring planks over 20” wide.

The Henry Whitfield house still stands, with its original floors intact, holding almost 400 years of history and tradition in every beautiful knot, dent, and natural characteristic.
