When I was a boy we bought a old Antebellum house in Mississppi about a hour from Natchez that we moved over to our land in
Natchez. A image of the house is attached along with a link to a youtube video of the house. I have since taken up woodworking and recovered some of the old timber that was original to that house. We kept most all of the lumber from the original house. Inside the house the walls were paneled with the picture of the wide planks below. Its rough sawn stuff that varies in thickness and width. Its so hard you cannot drive a nail in it, however its pretty brittle and very splintery. We always assumed it was heart pine but I want to see what you guys think. Also, in the video and attached below are some images of beams and other dimensional lumber timbers that came from the old house. Could you ID these too?
Also had some of this, Walnut I think? This is the front and back.
