stair railing

>The local museum is attempting to restore an 1880 era home. Someone in the past 30 plus years yanked out the bannister, and spindles, of the main open stair case. There are 3 original spindles remaining at the top, and I feel fairly competent in replicating 12 of them. What would be the wood of choice for strength, turnability, finish?
