Join us on an exciting journey discovering boulders and stones across the New England Countryside.
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.
Reclaimed granite curbing was used for the patio and fire pit. Salvaged bluetone veneer was used to accent the fire pit surround. This material was installed on a properly prepared gravel base and finished with a stabilizing sand to fill the joints.
We have hundreds of square feet of material in a variety of colors. Contact us today for pricing!
We love finding these beautiful treasures in the woods!
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.
A friend of ours recently acquired this historic property in Dudley, MA. Years of neglect will require it to be dismantled . Each piece of wood and stone will be repurposed and brought to our Charlton, MA yard.
Please contact us if you are interested in any of the stone or wood materials from this 1780’s federal style home.
Here is a link to the Preservation Mass flickr portfolio. Great pictures!
We were able to salvage hundreds of bluestone and granite window sills from the Cranston Print Works deconstruction project.
This mill property was located in Webster, MA for over 100 years. The bluestone is hand pitched and finished. The granite is a beautiful salmon tone.
We have hundreds of tons of reclaimed granite veneer from the Worcester State Hospital deconstruction project.
Window lintels and sills were carefully salvaged and are stored in Charlton, MA. They would make ideal fireplace surrounds or reused as a lintel or sill. We can custom size any stone for your specific installation.
Stone of New England is happy to announce we now accept Bitcoins. We are the first supply company in New England , possibly the world (we’re checking) to accept Bitcoins as payment. Please contact us today if you would like to purchase reclaimed stone with Bitcoins.
Reclaimed granite stepping stones lead the visitor towards a hand split granite post. The post is engraved with Pallas Athena, an excerpt from Poe’s work “The Raven”.
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” .
Located in the center, below the stone, is a hand chisels granite basin to hold water. The reflection is a great compliment to the design.
A good friend of mine designed this beautiful landscape. I was fortunate enough to be able to be part.
We supplied four hand split posts, a granite bench, a wellstone, granite stepping stones, granite keystones and a hand carved granite basin.
Many of the stones were engraved as well. There will be plenty of photos to come!
This is my favorite photo I’ve ever taken of a stone. I hope you enjoy.
This great set of granite steps was carefully salvaged over the past week. The overall width is 5’8″, the steps being 48″ wide. Chiseled sides dress the left and right of the steps. We can create one set with six steps or three sets with two each. Contact us today for more info and pricing about salvaged granite steps.

Deep Woods Breathe Together
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.
This is a great example of a colonial factory and mill. The foundation is still intact although heavily deteriorated in sections. It is along the beginning of the Little River between Charlton Reservoir and Pier Point in Dudley, Ma. There is quite alot of history to this area including old and forgotten quarries.
The photos below show a locally quarried granite. The material was split within 1/2 mile of the property. Millstones and other unique elements adorn adjacent properties. Our inventory includes large blocks of stone that would install very similarly. Please contact us today if you are interested in having authentic looking stone for your landscape or masonry project.
The following pieces are going to be installed in a large stone circle design. We will have many photos to come of this great project.
Theses pictures were taken while hiking the Colonel.
This was done by a good friend of our Josh. Reclaimed granite was used as the walking surface combined with a concrete circle kit , used cobblestones and a bluestone inlay salvaged from Amherst, Ma. What a package!
