THE WESTERN HERITAGE STORY
In 1994, Tim McClellan took over the old 14,000 square foot Mingus Union High School gymnasium in Jerome, Arizona, and opened Western Heritage Furniture. The high school was closed in 1972, when it was moved from Jerome to nearby Cottonwood. Much like the furniture created there, the building itself has been repurposed into a new identity. The Mingus Marauder’s giant pirate mascot still looks over the wood shop with menacing eyes and sword.

What started out as a one-man-show has evolved into an extraordinary crew of craftsmen and characters, an eclectic mix of artists, visionaries, environmentalists and patriots. We are thankful we live in this great country and feel quite blessed to have a home here at Western Heritage. Truth is, our company is so much more than just a place to come to work; we’re a family.
GREEN BEFORE IT WAS “COOL”

Sustainable furniture is not exactly a new idea. Americans have refinished, re-used, re-purposed and created furniture from salvaged materials for centuries. Each piece within the Western Heritage Furniture Collection has a unique patina ranging from rich grays to hints of orange and deep rust. Western Heritage Furniture Collection is an innovative blend of reclaimed, weathered wood fused with regionally harvested solid woods.
TOMORROW’S ANTIQUES TODAY

Much like the early settlers who built the structures that we are reclaiming, Western Heritage Furniture is an industry pioneer. Craftsmanship is not a catchword here at Western Heritage Furniture, but the very heart of why we do what we do. We are dedicated to preserving some of the oldest traditions of handmade furniture using recycled barn wood. Like good leather and fine wine our furniture is designed to grow better, more beautiful—and more comfortable—with age.
OLD BARNS SEEM TO EMBODY THE ENTIRE ESSENCE OF “MOVING OUT WEST”

Western Heritage crafts furniture from beautifully weathered barn wood that has been salvaged from old structures all across the United States. Iconic remnants of an American way of life, these old barns, buildings and homes provide a source of reclaimed wood that makes up most of the material that goes into our furniture.

MOTHER NATURE’S FINGERPRINTS

There is so much that goes into our reclaimed barn wood furniture. The unique characteristics of notches, ax marks, nail holes and cracks give the wood a beauty in its own right. It’s like there is a living energy inside our Ghostwood that you just don’t find in today’s milled lumber.
