Most of it looks like yellow/heart pine.

Thanks Casey..Are the pecks natural? At some point someone put oak over all the floors but the kitchen and the upstair rooms. I like the old floors better. The kitchen steps down one board thickness so I know they're still under there. I've been scraping wallpaper off the plaster and see the dust on the floor.

It looks like vertical grain yellow (hard) pine. The lighter sections are sapwood and the darker sections are heartwood.
