Reclaimed Redwood from Historic Hangar One at Moffett Field
Completed during the Great Depression by the U.S. Navy as a hangar for blimps, Hanger One has a rich history that includes World War II, Cold War spying, and space exploration. Bigger than six football fields, Hangar One is one of the largest freestanding structures in the world.
As a result of the recent renovation of this iconic structure, a limited amount of old growth redwood has been uncovered from inside the roof framework. Mission Bell has secured some of this precious material that offers ecologically conscious architects, designers, and general contractors a once in a lifetime opportunity to incorporate a rare part of Silicon Valley history into your next project. Mission Bell will give this special wood new life as paneling, millwork, cabinetry, and more. Mission Bell is FSC® certified (SCS-COC-000557). (License code FSC-C003580)
