Help.. Flooring Material

I was in Charlotte, NC over the Thanksgiving week. I was shopping at a Mall and seen Old Barn Siding used as flooring in a up scaled clothing store.. My question is, can (yellow,heart or notty) Pine be used as flooring? Will it withstand the traffic? Or did they treat it? Is there a Pine that can be used for flooring? I like the width of this material and it give a real old fashion look to the room.

Probably not more than a couple hundred years!

Southern yellow pine is pretty dense and holds up to alot. Alot of old factory buildings had pine heartwood flooring, (if you find some, it's worth a bundle) I have a red pine t&g floor in our guest bath, it doesn't get used everyday, but quite a bit, including showers most summer days. An exterior oil poly urethane finish has kept it looking great for 7 years.
