Reclaimed Siding With a Tangible Connection to the Past
Montana didn't have tobacco barns, but we do have beautiful ranch country and we wanted to reflect that in naming our Potomac Valley Pine.
Potomac, Montana, is home to some of the most beautiful and breathtaking countryside. The region is surrounded by hills and forests and located just west of the towering Ruby Range. The landscape is incredibly lush and has ample fresh mountain water running through it, thanks to the famous Blackfoot River and countless branching streams.
This area has a long ranching history and remains home to some of the world's largest private ranches. Many have original structures still standing that date back to the mid-1800s when cowboys first started driving large herds of cattle into the region. In those days, the Potomac Valley was even more rough and rugged. To make it through the long winters, the ranchers needed to shape the frontier into usable land using their hands, simple tools and the trees they had available.
Attractive Antique Siding From Old Barns Repurposed for Your Home
For many ranchers, tobacco provided one of life's small luxuries, but they couldn't just run to the store. With a huge supply of fertile land, they grew and cultivated their own tobacco. For drying, they built tobacco barns with boards milled from the tall pine trees native to the area. Pine made up every part of the barn and was used to make the siding, rafters, floor joists and the rest of the wooden structure.
Some of the barns grew to be quite large and stood for over a hundred years before finally coming down. When they did, we rescued the boards and repurposed them into our reclaimed pine softwood flooring. This flooring is authentic, naturally aged and has unique weathering that adds to the already rustic appearance.
