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.

Millbury Estate Salmon Foundation Stones

Millbury Estate Salmon Foundation Stones

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.
