Our Story

Governor's Antiques & Architectural Materials was founded by the late Gary Thomas in 1970.  Over the years, we've expanded into one of the most complete antique complexes in the United States, with 7 acres and 50,000 square feet under roof. We also offer a vast array of services onsite, with skilled craftsmen who can renew, transform, recreate, or build that unique treasure. 

Take a few minutes to check out our website and get to know us. Where else can you find a Civil War musket, an antique light fixture dating back 200+ years, miles of wrought iron fencing and gates, 400+ claw foot bath tubs, hundreds of doors, windows, and mantels, 1950's and 60's fully restored jukeboxes, a 3 carat diamond ring, and a gorgeous Rolex watch?  Here at Governor's...that's where.

The services we offer are second to none in our area.  Our master craftsmen refinish and rebuild furniture, build, polish and rewire light fixtures, cut and bend glass, weld and fabricate iron and steel fencing and gates, build custom furniture...and much more.
