Urban Remains background

About Urban Remains

With our main facility and building artifact museum and gallery located just west of downtown Chicago, Urban Remains has been dealing exclusively in the reclamation and recycling of American antique architectural artifacts and other oddities found among commercial and industrial buildings or residential structures for over the past 10 years. Our vast online collection contains over 28,000 meticulously documented and photographed salvaged artifacts found throughout the United States. New acquisitions are added daily to their respective categories found on the homepage. Urban Remains does not deal in new or reproduction building artifacts.
