A very unique part of this building is the interior hand hewn posts. They come from an old barn in Mercer County, Pennsylvania. The barn was constructed in 1860 by General James Pierce, according to a representative of the Mercer County Historical Society. General Pierce was quite prominent in building industry in the region and a popular man in the local society.
Multiple horse corrals around Fort Klamath, in Southern Oregon contributed the Red Corral Board siding on the Bar and interior cabinetry. These corrals were built and painted red in the 1940’s. As time passed, green and yellow lichen grew and yielded a nicely aged look to the boards. The half-posts applied occasionally to the front of the bar are from the cattle chute that was a part of the same corral.
“Mushroom Board” was used for the ceiling paneling and interior siding. The lumber used to build the mushroom growing trays for this Pennsylvania farm is Eastern Hemlock.
In the process of growing mushrooms, the softer part of the wood grain erodes, leaving the boards looking almost like they’ve been sandblasted. The color of the wood ages to a rich golden patina.
The flooring is Douglas Fir and was re-milled from timbers reclaimed from the old Lithia Motors building in downtown Medford.
The porch soffit wood was recovered at a sawmill demolition in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The material came from the Circle D.E. Sawmill, which was constructed in 1926 on Crosby Street.
Interior and exterior trim and beam wraps were recovered from a wooden granary in North Eastern California’s Cowhead Valley. It was built in the late 1930’s of local pine. Ranchers no longer grow grain in that region, so the granary sat abandoned for decades.
The 10” X 10” Douglas Fir exterior light posts came from the Port of Stockton, California.
The 2Hawk Wine Tasting Room is meant to be enjoyed in the moment and appreciated for its rich history.
