Western Red Cedar FiveX Shingles

Western Red Cedar, #1 5X shingles installed in Louisville, KY

One of my favourite parts of this line of work is occasionally being able to be a small part of history. Thanks to our partnership with HistoriCorps, Direct Cedar Supplies gets to enjoy this experience a few times per year. A big thank you to them for sending us these photos from a couple of their historical restorations from this year.

The first photo is of some Western Red Cedar, #1 5X shingles, installed on The Farnsley-Moreman Landing in Louisville, KY. Originally built in 1838, the Farnsely-Moreman landing, one of the largest farms in Jefferson county at the time (1500 acres) served as a river transportation and trading hub between 1820 and 1890

The second photo is of some of our Western Red Cedar 24″ Handsplit & Resawn Shakes, installed on the Lake Sherwood Recreation area in Greenbrier County, WV. Originally settled by Richard Rider and Jane Dixon Rider in 1790, Lake Sherwood has served campers, hikers and families alike for centuries.
