About AC Houston Lumber

Lumbermen since 1884

" Our goal is to sell products of quality and strength, give the customer their money's worth, and to treat each customer the way we, ourselves, would want to be treated." - Robert Houston, CEO

Among the optimistic Americans who migrated westward in the late 1800’s was A.C. Houston, who founded A.C. Houston Lumber in 1884. The pioneers of the time had set out to build new lives, and Houston established the company that would provide building materials to do so. The first A.C. Houston Lumber yards opened in the small Kansas towns of Eureka and Hamilton. More than one hundred thirty years later, A.C. Houston Lumber yards can be found in two western states of California and Idaho, with the corporate headquarters being located in Ketchum Idaho.

Much has changed since 1884, but the business philosophy of A.C. Houston has been passed down unchanged to third-generation family member, Robert A. Houston, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  Houston says.
