The Historic Pen Company: Committed to quality
The Historic Pen Company in keeping with our commitment to secure, salvage and repurpose historic wood, timber and other materials, has put together a team of artists, craftsmen and artisans to create an ever expanding collection of products and works of art that meet our goals: the development and creation of original and limited edition works and product that will make materials that might otherwise be lost to history available to the public.
The Historic Pen Company (HPC) began with a simple goal: the reclamation, salvaging and repurposing of wood and other natural materials from historic sites throughout the United States that would otherwise be discarded and lost to history.
HPC works primarily with wood and timbers removed from historical buildings and sites during the renovation of existing structures as well as with trees and branches that have fallen in storms, or are removed for safety reasons or expanded construction.
HPC offers a historically significant, revenue producing alternative to support the ongoing operation of its client historical sites rather than the discarding and destruction of these limited, one of a kind resources, thus preserving not only history, but the integrity of the environment through the repurposing of these materials.
HPC, although a for profit business, provides clients a way to directly benefit from our unique model of giving these otherwise wasted resources new life by repurposing materials from historically significant structures and sites and receiving a portion of the revenue generated though our efforts. Although HPC’s initial creations were limited to fine writing instruments, HPC has developed a group of artists, craftsmen, artisans and others and expanded our product offering to include picture frames, bottle stoppers, ornaments, magnets, bookmarks, furniture, artwork and other memorabilia.
With the challenges facing all of us in the 21st Century and as the Greatest Generation and Baby Boomers age, the relationship with our fore fathers and national identity seems to be fading. When combined with the challenges facing fundraising activities for all charitable entities, foundations, cultural and historic sites, we at HPC are not only committed to preserving our national identity and preserving sites, buildings and materials that have not only witnessed but have been part of our national identity, we are also committed to supporting those fundraising needs all of our clients and other charitable entities face.
We hope you will join us in our efforts to keep our history alive for current and future generations as we strive in our small way to ensure America’s culture and history is preserved.
