About Martin Hardware

1886 Store Front

Founded in Charlottesville in 1893 Martin Hardware has been around for more that one hundred years!  Almost Fifty years ago, we moved to our present location at 941 Preston Avenue. Since the beginning, Martin Hardware has served the community, offering builder's hardware, paint and lacquer, plumbing, electrical, welding supplies, and now an extensive line of Weber grills has been added. Martin Hardware even offers a convenient propane tank exchange right at our store!  We also maintain a stock of house wares and seasonal items, and offer services like duplicating keys and re-keying of locks.
