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.

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.

 

 

Lelandville – Charlton, Ma

Lelandville – Charlton, Ma

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.

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.
