Sangamon Reclaimed has been featured on the Rediscover America website thanks to Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau tourism manager, Jeff Berg. When asked, ‘what local maker or brand do you love supporting?’ Mr. Berg responded, ‘Sangamon Reclaimed is a local maker that takes wood from old barns and buildings and turns it into new, handcrafted furniture.’ He continues, ‘whether it’s a dining room set, a cool mantle for your fireplace, or a custom bar they make some incredible things.’
We enjoyed working with Jeff and his team when we designed and handcrafted the desk at the new visitor center in downtown Springfield. Some of the wood originates from the family farm of Lincoln’s law partner’s brother. Rediscover America was created by travel experts and destination organizations to help vacationers plan their next adventure. The website also encourages others to rediscover what it is that makes their hometown unique or to explore a new community.
Our Flags for Heroes program, which supports US veterans, is also featured on Rediscover America. You can find out more about #FlagsForHeroes.
