Who We Are


The Salvage Barn, operated by Friends of Historic Preservation, preserves historic architectural items and keeps priceless materials out of the landfill. It serves as a source for homeowners to find historically appropriate and ecologically friendly parts.



The Salvage Barn runs entirely on donations. If you have items that are 50 years or older that you no longer need, please consider bringing them to the Barn, rather than tossing them in the landfill. Donations are tax-deductible.

On May 4th the historic Houser-Metzger House will be saved from demolition.  Join us for a Party in College Green Park on May 4th from 10:30am - 2pm as we watch the house move around the park to its new home.
