    Longevity, Backed by New Blood - By Carla Waldemar, Building-Products.com
    WHAT do you do when the hardwood is stripped and gone? If you're a lumberyard owner with a little moxie, you go looking for the Next Big Thing.

    That kind of thinking has kept Norvell & Wallace on the Nashville map since its start-up in 1880. Tennessee was occupied by the Federal Army during the War Between the States (as it's called in these parts), when Union forces cut down everything bigger than a lilac bush to build their forts and quarters. So enterprising co-owner William Norvell hopped a train to Alabama to see if whatever grew down there might keep them going, and the answer was-oh, I'll bet you already guessed it-southern yellow pine. Never used it before in Tennessee, never stopped using it since.
