We were able to salvage this home foundation with the help from a friend in Brimfield, MA. This home was built in the early 1800’s and had a granite sill around the majority of the structure. This granite looks similar to that quarried down the street in Monson, MA.
Wedge shaped holes were made in the granite in order to split them. These marks generally suggest construction from 1800’s-1870’s.

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. The stones , likely over one hundred years old, were removed and had been sitting around waiting to be discovered.
Each granite bollard is covered in heavy lichen and patina. The weathering wraps the corners and extends from top to bottom. It’s rare to see this type of weathering on so many pieces.
Apex tops dress most of the posts. The piece pictured below is one of thirteen identical in finish but varying in exposed length.

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.””
The above quote mentions Monson Pink. This would be interesting to know if this is true and also a Norcross Bros. stone. I was alway under the impression this was Milford Pink Granite.
Madison Boulder is located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It measures 83′ long x 23′ high and is 37′ wide. The boulder weighs over 5000 tons.

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.

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.

This treasure was unearthed while hiking. Is it a butterfly or a turtle? Either way it appears to be similar to other effigies in New England. I like to envision Big Panther reflecting on his ancestors while visiting the Colonel. Other standing stones and boulders mark the landscape.

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.
