The Family Stone

The Family Stone

We just acquired this stone from a local collector and salvage specialist. This stone once sat below the waters of the Quabbin.  This stone is not for sale and will remain in our family for generations to come. The Family Stone will be shared between four family homes. Every year the stone will move locations and a party will follow! It will be a great way to stay connected.

Salvaged Granite Stock

Salvaged Granite Stock

This granite is a unique color with square faces and sharp corners. This stone was once quarried for the developing construction of the railroad bridges across New England.

We are sorting the stones by size and doing loose and palletized loads of material. We can custom fabricate the stock finishing it to your specs for any job!

This stone is heavily weathered and we are carefully handling it to your home.

Cobbles and small wall stone are the most prevalent and packaged in 3000lb pallets and 20 ton containers.

Large patches of moss and lichen cover the stones from decades of weathering and exposure.
