More Than Lumber. Since 1888.

In 1888 Thomas Hughes purchased the assets of Elmore Martin's Brick Yard, located at 82 Mary St., Charleston and commenced doing business as the Hughes Company, selling lumber and building supplies.

Around 1904, H.C. Burn started working for the Hughes Company and in 1910 Mr. Hughes sold his company to the Burn brothers H.C. and Ernest P. [The mortgage listed: (2) mules and harness, (3) carts, and all other articles on the premises including brick, lumber, and lime.]

Four years later in 1914, H.C. Burn bought his brothers half interest in the company, some growth can be noted from comparing bill of sales. An additional mule was added as well as gravel, terra cotta piping, and a truck. READ MORE
