Boston City Hall Pavers

Boston City Hall Pavers

Stiles and Hart has been manufacturing brick for over a century in Massachusetts. Established in 1886 and now with over 100 years of experience, The Stiles and Hart Brick Company remains the only brick manufacturer in Massachusetts. Our bricks impart an authentic colonial beauty to every project.

We choose to frame the Stiles and Hart Boston City Hall brick with reclaimed granite curbing. This stone was salvaged from Sturbridge during a highway reconstruction project. Its worn tops and soft edges made it a perfect fit.

If you are looking for any type of clay brick paver to use for your patio or walkway please contact Camosse Masonry Supply @ 508.248.4044. , 23 Trolley Crossing Rd, Charlton, MA 01507.

Granite Millstone

Granite Millstone

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.

Odd Fellows Home Reclaimed Granite

Odd Fellows Home Reclaimed Granite

We have an abundance of reclaimed granite from the Odd Fellows Home in Worcester, MA. The building was taken down in 2014-2015. We were able to salvage most of the granite sills, window trim and foundation stone. We also have  granite steps from the same project.

The stones pictured below have one edge that is beveled. This stone would be ideal for a custom granite fireplace surround. It could be used inside or out. We have over one hundred feet of this granite in stock.

IMG_5055

Every window in the Odd Fellows Home has a granite sill and surround. Most sills have a traditional finished face and beveled top. We have used these for all types of landscaping or masonry applications.

Pictured below are dozens of granite window sills salvaged from Worcester, MA.

Weathered Granite Bollards

Weathered Granite Bollards

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.

Warren Public Library

Warren Public Library

Here is a beautiful example of Richardsonian Romanesque Architecture. This is the public library in Warren , MA. The building was opened in 1889.

IMG_20160219_0003 IMG_20160219_0004

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.””

library2The 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, White Mountains

We were proud to have been asked to create Hand Split Granite Posts for the Historic Town of Senoia , GA.

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

curbset

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. It was by pure chance that these two stones were reunited,  Just in the three months these stones were in our yard we moved them four times before palletizing them as shown above.

One in a million.

The Raven

The Raven

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-
