Mike Hill

Cross Creek Architectural Artifacts in Springfield, Mo., held an auction in late August to sell its remaining inventory of architectural antiques. Architectural Salvage & Antique Lumber News reported previously that owner Mike Hill had sold the 5,000 square-foot facility and two-acre yard after being approached by an investor interested in the property. The auction was conducted by Bob Kollmeier Auctions, and Hill has since retired. An article in the The Springfield News Leader quoted Hill as saying that Cross Creek’s annual revenue exceeded $1 million during its best years. A message posted on the company’s Facebook page Sept. 1, read, “Thanks to everyone that attended the auction last weekend! We had a great turnout and everything went fast! As of today, our Guinevere St. showroom and warehouse is officially closed.

We will continue to offer reclaimed beams, flooring and brick on a wholesale level. Feel free to message us on this page if you have interest in those items or are looking for anything in particular!”
