History

“Turpentine runs through our veins.” T.H. Guerry, Sr.

T.H. Guerry, Sr. (Pop) founded Guerry Lumber in 1927 on the southwest corner of the Victory Drive and Bull Street intersection. T.H., Jr. spent his childhood working at the company and in 1934, at the age of 20, became his father’s business partner. Today Lindy Wheat, T.H., Sr.’s great-granddaughter, is the fourth generation charged with maintaining the Guerry tradition for personal service, masterful craftsmanship and high-quality products.

“Pop started Guerry Lumber from a little office and workshop.” T.H. Guerry, Jr.

In early days, Pop Guerry sold nails and lumber out of a metal shed just big enough for a desk and a heater. The wood would arrive by rail, rough and green. Everything we sold was manufactured at Guerry Lumber, from windows and sashes to turned wood columns and stair parts.

“We work hard to build solid relationships with our customers.” Kirby Beam, President, 1988- 2004.

The company’s success and the camaraderie between Pop Guerry and his crew are legendary. Pop use to say their strong bond was the result of pure, gum turpentine running through their veins. To this day, Guerry Lumber is a group of talented individuals committed to providing customers with quality service and products.

“Our focus is customer service and quality products.” Steve Chick, President, 2004 - Present
