          Historical Restoration & Preservation


          Restoration and preservation of historical pieces is not just about repairing broken legs or mending split wood; it's a passionate pursuit of maintaining the integrity of craftsmanship from centuries past. Our artisans delve into the annals of furniture-making history, sourcing period-appropriate materials and employing age-old techniques to ensure authenticity. In the hands of these dedicated experts, each piece becomes a testament to the enduring legacy of the skilled artisans who first shaped them.

          At Mumford Restoration we have been privileged to restore and preserve pieces from as early as the 17th Century from North Carolina and around the globe.

          Heritage Square:
          Fayetteville, NC

          Heritage Square in Fayetteville, N.C., is now under the ownership and maintenance of the Woman's Club of Fayetteville. It proudly showcases three remarkable historic structures that have been recognized and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. These include the Sandford House, built in 1800, the Oval Ballroom, a freestanding single room constructed in 1818, and the Baker Haigh Nimocks House, which dates back to 1804.

          Our team of artisans restored the terribly damaged shutters on the Oval Ballroom, as well as a gilded mantle mirror and the Angel of Victory painting by Elliott Daingerfield, both of which are featured in the Sandford House.
