We recently salvaged a pile of Flint in the woods of North Brookfield, MA. The stone is not likely native to the area and much is still a mystery about its origins. We hope to learn some traditional flint knapping techniques in the near future.
While we were stacking the flint from the ground into a wooden crate I came across this rounded stone. I put it in my back pocket with the thought that it might be an unsplit piece of flint. When getting back to the office we began handling the stone and realized its ergonomic shape was not likely a natural formation but rather shaped by mans hand.
A good friend of ours discovered this treasure while excavating a property in Spencer , MA. Its original use was as a Millstone likely used in a local mill. After retiring from its day job it rest on top of an artisan well only to be buried by decades of dirt and leaves.
It’s not often you find a millstone or a wellstone. It’s very rare when you find them both in the same stone.

Sometimes your lucky enough to be around at the right time and the right place. This is one of those times. We have salvaged 65 granite bollards that have been sitting in the woods for more than forty years.

Here is a beautiful example of Richardsonian Romanesque Architecture. This is the public library in Warren , MA. The building was opened in 1889.
Taken from the Warren Public Library Website”
“Architect Amos P. Cutting of Worcester was engaged to design this Richardson Romanesque building, using Monson pink granite and Longmeadow brownstone. The firm of Patrick Beston of Springfield did the construction. The new Library building was dedicated July 4, 1890 with appropriate exercises, involving Officers of the Town and the Warren Public Library corporation and Building Committee. Inscribed in the granite over the door are the words “Free too All.” A plaque on the wall to the right reads “WPL – A Gift of Friends.””

One day we hope to visit these stones in their new home.

In the life of a granite curb it’s handled dozens of times while being cut, shipped, installed, removed , salvaged, sorted and then packaged for the client.

One in a million.

“The large three story brick building was designed by Baker & Nourse and constructed in 1890-92 as a charitable facility for the aged and sick. The Romanesque building’s most prominent feature is a projecting central pavilion that rises a full five stories. The building was enlarged in 1902, and had capacity for 110 residents”
We were recently asked to create four Reclaimed Granite Lamp Posts for a customer in Newburyport. These granite window sills were salvaged from one of our first mill projects. They measure roughly 9″ square and 8’6″ long. We used the sloped side of the stone to mount a copper conduit to. This prevented us from having to core drill through the center. A costly and risky task.
At Stone of New England we can present multiple options for any job. Our customer choose between these sills and other hand split granite posts.
We were able to remove concrete and most debris from the stone with out giving it an entire facelift. The lower stones are uncleaned.
The copper is tied into the vinyl mount and ready for a fixture.
We had one of our best loads go out to one of our best customers! This load was filled with foundation stones from the Millbury Estate, the Webster House, The Leominster Victorian and hand split posts and steps from a half dozen other wonderful properties.

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—nevermore! – -Poe-

This granite well stone was salvaged in Barre, Ma. It now sits on Long Island, NY. The engraving’s translation is ” everything changes…nothing perishes” .

While salvaging the stone from Millbury last year we discovered an addition built over the past one hundred years. It appeared, by debris found, to be the milking room. This stone must have been quarried off the property considering its rougher hewn finish and similarities to the make up, not color, of other stones in the area.
This material would be ideal for siting walls or decorative features within a landscape or masonry installation.
