84 Lumber

The original 84 Lumber opened in 1956. It was a "cash and carry" lumber yard located in a rural town 20 miles south of Pittsburgh. That town was named Eighty Four, Pa. and where 84 Lumber got its name. (How the town got its unusual name is another story. It was originally named Smithville, but due to postal confusion with another town of the same name, its name was changed to "Eighty Four" on July 28, 1884. There are many competing theories about why that strange name was chosen.)
