What started as simply storing materials in a small barn in Leitchfield, Kentucky in 1962 has grown into the multi-location business that Mid-South Lumber and Supply is today. Adapting to meet the ever changing needs of our market, our look and name may have changed over the years, but our commitment to providing quality products and superior service to our customers has remained the same. Each of our locations is staffed by qualified professionals with the knowledge and experience necessary to guide you through your building project whatever it may be. From remodeling to new home construction, Mid-South is here to service your building material needs.
