  RARE ITEMS FOR SALE AT OLDE NEW ENGLAND BUILDING AND SALVAGE IN LEBANON  

    Glenn Pianka runs Olde New England Building and Salvage out of what he calls his “working house” in the woods of southwest Lebanon.  The house was built in Salem 1760-1780. Glenn hauled it to Lebanon, moved in with wife Holli and daughter Laura, and then built a Colonial-styled warehouse behind it, which he proceeded to fill with one of the largest selections of pre-1850 wood, stone, and steel building components that you can find anywhere. If you think I’m exaggerating, take a look at his website and decide for yourself.

   Glenn was born in the little town of Bozrah, just down the road from Lebanon. He is a retired Connecticut State Police officer and is the current president of the Lebanon Historical Society. He maintains a second warehouse behind an old house he owns in Bozrah.

   On a recent visit to Glenn I got to see up close his huge inventory of 18th and early 19th century flooring, paneling, and cupboards.  In addition, Glenn showed me some special items that as far as I know are still for sale:
There were two pre-1750 brownstone floor sinks. Not something you see for sale very often.

   There was a Civil War-era boot-scraper in mint condition. You imagined all the busy men that had used it in its day—anxious , determined feet of farmers, tradesmen, soldiers—all on their hurried way to inevitable dusty death.

   Two bake oven doors from the 1830s-1850s represented the earliest years of consumer mass production. The women who used them no doubt felt they were the ultimate limit in high-tech.
