The 2021 Reclaimed Wood Christmas Angel ornaments are available for ordering!

We are thrilled to announce that this year’s angels are hand-crafted out of lumber sawn from wood that was reclaimed from the historic Augusta GA Cotton Exchange building.

Located on the banks of the Savannah River, Augusta has long been associated with the cotton industry. At its height, Augusta was the second largest inland cotton market in the world. During that time, a group of prominent merchants organized the Augusta Cotton Exchange, and by 1878, its facilities received and processed 200,000 bales of cotton. In 1885, the city had eight cotton manufacturers. The most rapid growth in Augusta’s cotton industry occurred in the 1880s, with a 580% increase in production.

The Augusta Cotton Exchange Building was constructed in the mid-1880s at the height of both the production and trade of cotton in Augusta. The building housed offices for the brokers as well as the trading floor, where buyers and sellers closely watched the day-to-day prices of cotton and other commodities.

In 1988, Mr. Bill Moore of Aiken, South Carolina, noticed the decaying deserted building, which he purchased and restored. He had the third floor and original roofline replaced, scraped the paint off of the interior heart pine wood, and repaired the windows. The most important artifact still remaining from the exchange is the 45 foot blackboard, which still has chalk figures written on it dating back to the early 1900s.

Each Angel Ornament is 6X6 inches, assembled by hand, then adorned with a natural jute twin bow and hanger. Comes with a certificate of authenticity from Apple Valley Farm and the year stamped on the back.
