“What the [McIlvain] family does not know about lumber is certainly not worth studying. Some lumbermen come and others go, but the McIlvains go on forever.”
-The New York Lumber Trade Journal of June 15, 1898 on the hundredth anniversary of the J. Gibson McIlvain Co.-
With over 200 years in business, wood is in our blood at J. Gibson McIlvain. As it was in the late 18th century, it is the same today: We provide nothing but the best quality wood products.
