Eco Relics removes the bar top from Hooters at the Jacksonville Landing.

When Eco Relics founders and owners Annie and Michael Murphy heard the city would demolish The Jacksonville Landing, Annie immediately picked up the phone.

“I made a lot of phone calls. It turns out the demolition company heard about us from one of our customers. They said we are 'a cool company,'” she said.

The Murphys have co-owned and operated the architectural salvage business Eco Relics since March 2014.

From their 50,000-square-foot former railroad freight depot at 106 Stockton St. in Jacksonville's Rail Yard District, the Murphys reclaim wood and save old doors, light fixtures, cabinets, tools and memorabilia and keep it from the landfill.

Eco Relics now is taking its picking skills to the 32-year-old Landing.
