Published in 1984, the hardback book Aged in Wood is a history of the company, Payless Cashways, Inc. Written byVirginia Sugg Furrow, the wife of Vernon Furrow, one of the founders of the company, the book highlights the early history of the company, leading up to 1984. The exact print run is unknown, but our editors believe the company printed 10,000 copies, if that many. Copies of the book are hard to find, and pristine examples a treasure.
What you find here is an electronic transcription of the book. While it does carry a copyright, dated 1984, the company, which held the copyright is no longer in business, so we are republishing the material here for access by former employees, historians and anybody else that has an interest in the history of this Midwestern Lumber Company.
