About Shaw Stewart

Quality lumber, millwork since 1886

Shaw/Stewart Lumber Company is the Twin City’s oldest lumber company and source for premium architectural millwork. It also is home to the Twin Cities only Marvin Design Gallery. We serve Minnesota’s fine homebuilders, premier remodelers, and commercial general contractors.

Our heritage began in 1886 with the WR Shaw Lumber Co. in St. Paul. After purchasing G.C. Jefferson Lumber Co. in 1924 and the Stewart Lumber Co. in 1985, the consolidated company ultimately was renamed Shaw/Stewart Lumber Co. in 1996.

Our handshake remains our bond

For more than 130 years, we have built our company on mutual trust, quality products and personal service. Much has changed as we have innovated and invested in growth. But we are proud to have nurtured a legacy of contractor and architect relationships where a simple handshake remains our bond.
