About Us

Governor's Antiques & Architectural Materials was founded by the late Gary Thomas in 1970.  Over the past 47 years, we've expanded into one of the most complete antique complexes in the United States, with 7 acres and nearly 50,000 square feet under roof. Now under the direction of Jeff Thomas, Governor's is about as far from your average "antique shop" as it could be.

Take a few minutes to check out our website and get to know us. Where else can you find a Civil War musket, a stunning antique light fixture, miles of wrought iron fencing and gates, 400+ claw foot bath tubs, hundreds of doors, windows, and mantels, fine jewelry, custom furniture, and completely original lines of furniture, accessories, and jewelry? Here at Governor's...that's where.

The services we offer are second to none in our area.  Our master craftsmen refinish and rebuild furniture, build, polish and rewire light fixtures, cut and bend glass, weld and fabricate iron and steel fencing and gates, build custom furniture and lighting...and much more.
