Committed to creating Made in the USA historic heirloom quality works of art and function, HistoryPens.com, LLC has committed to utilize its design and artisan capabilities in the creation of fine quality heirloom writing instruments made from pieces of our historic past by salvaging and repurposing small pieces of Witness Wood® from historic and cultural sites, buildings, vessels and items that would normally be discarded and lost to history. The United States boasts one of the richest and most important historical traditions of any nation in the world. As the birthplace of freedom and democracy, America is home to many unique historical sites that continue to have a special place in the hearts of Americans today. Sites like Independence Hall have a hallowed significance in our history, but like all structures, they must undergo periodic maintenance and rehabilitation. When this occurs, much of the original materials are discarded without regard to their historic value. The Historic Pen Company was founded to repurpose these materials into lasting heirlooms and collectibles that can be handed down generation after generation with the respect and veneration they deserve. The Historic Pen Company recently acquired the only documented wood ever removed from Independence Hall. This amazing Witness Wood®, removed during the 1898 restoration and renovation of Independence Hall will be fashioned into numbered Limited Edition fine writing instruments and cufflinks and made available to the public. These handcrafted limited edition collections will be created using precious and semi-precious materials including: silver, pewter, rhodium, brass, 18K gold and more to feature original construction pieces of Independence Hall Witness Wood® that once felt the footsteps and touch of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams among others. The Historic Pen Company is proud to partner with Allen Edmonds Corporation across their retail stores and online at www.AllenEdmonds.com nationwide distribution of the first ever collection of pens featuring Independence Hall original construction Witness Wood®. The initial handcrafted 76-piece Limited Edition Classic Rollerball Collection of Independence Hall pens is available exclusively at www.AllenEdmonds.com.
