About

“History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days,” by Winston Churchill.

 

Iron Will & Woodworks was created with the mission of reconstructing and reviving the passion of history. The owners, Mark and Tracey Miller, have taken on the task of “rebuilding history one piece at a time”. Our shop is located in the historic town of St. Michaels, Maryland and is nestled in one of the oldest flour mills on the eastern shore. We chose the 1890s Flour Mill and quaint town due to its rich history (The town that fooled the British!) and lovely community.

We are a family run business and between us, we have countless years of successful custom building and teaching. Our growing passion comes from our travels around the country seeking lost historical treasures, old wood barns, dilapidated buildings, and homesteads.  We get very excited about providing our clients with a very unique product and its historical relevance that they can pass on to their family and friends. We pride ourselves on the interesting research we do for every piece of salvage, rare wood slab, antique, and vintage piece. We truly love that our product strikes a personal memory for so many customers that enter our shop.

We strongly believe in supporting small businesses and tradesmen in our eastern shore community. We would be honored to have you stop by the Iron Will & Woodworks shop on your next visit. If you share the passion of American history and you are seeking for that one of a kind item, stop by the most unique store in St. Michaels. We are a dog friendly shop, so come on by and you may even get to meet our rescue black labs passing out dog treats.
