Our History
Capitol City Lumber Company was incorporated in 1945, but due to World War II was not started until April 1, 1947.After World War II, our founder, James Anglin Nicholson, started the company with one empty building, a two ton truck and a single load of plywood. During those days when materials were hard to find, he established his place in the community by offering quality lumber and building materials at a fair price.

Our business is still owned and operated by our founders family and is now being managed by the third generation.  Although the company has grown, we strive every day to live up to our founder’s original mission of quality, service and dependability. Today, we’re the lumber company Raleigh relies on for products and service that stand the test of time.
