S. A. Fishburn, Inc. was established in 2001 by owners Sally Fishburn and Susannah Morlock.  Sally graduated with a B. S. in Architecture from Penn State University in 1987. Even before graduation she realized that she had more interest in restoring historic buildings than in designing new ones.  She then attended the North Bennett Street School in Boston, MA for their two-year hands-on Preservation Carpentry program and graduated in 1991. She returned to Pennsylvania, opened a restoration business and worked in the area for a few years.  After relocating to northern Vermont, she worked for Littleton Millwork, Littleton, NH and honed her fine woodworking skills by creating reproduction historic windows, doors and millwork. 

In June of 2001, S. A. Fishburn, Inc. opened for business.

We have been serving clients throughout New England for the past 16 years including private residences, public and commercial buildings, churches and government buildings.
