A blight in the early 1900s wiped out nearly all of the growing stands of Chestnut trees and the wood was widely used in old barns, mills, general stores, cabins, schoolhouses, and stables across eastern US. As these structures are getting old, the valuable chestnut wood is being harvested and reclaimed to build furniture that passes on the legacy of the American Chestnut Tree.
