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.

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.””

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

One in a million.

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-

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.
