  • Poindexter Lumber celebrates 100 years

    Something special has kept Poindexter Lumber running for 100 years - family ties.

    The current owners, Bill Selin and Bobby Poindexter are first cousins.

    Their fathers both worked there.

    Their grandfather worked there.

    And their great-grandfather worked there.

    It's that family connection which has helped the business weather the storm of construction supercenters and giant corporate lumber yards.

    There used to be three lumber yards in Cynthiana.

    Then there were two.

    Now, only Poindexter remains to try and carve out a niche in the future.
