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.

Hand Split Granite Hitching Posts

These posts were made to line a driveway. Rings were installed to allow chain to be hung between posts. Twenty posts were made in all for this project.

The granite was sourced from South St in Ware, Ma. We had over two thousand feet of reclaimed granite salvaged from the streets of Ware. Many of the largest pieces still sit in our Charlton, MA stoneyard.

Reclaimed Bluestone Patio

We have just reclaimed over one thousand square feet of pristine Reclaimed Bluestone. This random assortment of sizes ranges from 12″x12″ up to larger 24″x36″ stones. The thickness averages 1.5″ and the top weathered surface has a natural cleft finish. This would be ideal for any patio or walkway.

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

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

Madison Boulder is located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  It measures 83′ long x 23′ high and is 37′ wide. The boulder weighs over 5000 tons. For more info about this boulder and many others like it join us at http://www.stonesofthepast.com where we hypothesize the idea these stones were moved and shaped by hand.

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.

“The large three story brick building was designed by Baker & Nourse and constructed in 1890-92 as a charitable facility for the aged and sick. The Romanesque building’s most prominent feature is a projecting central pavilion that rises a full five stories. The building was enlarged in 1902, and had capacity for 110 residents”

The Family Stone

We just acquired this stone from a local collector and salvage specialist. This stone once sat below the waters of the Quabbin.  This stone is not for sale and will remain in our family for generations to come. The Family Stone will be shared between four family homes. Every year the stone will move locations and a party will follow! It will be a great way to stay connected.

Reclaimed Granite Lamp Posts

We were recently asked to create four Reclaimed Granite Lamp Posts for a customer in Newburyport. These granite window sills were salvaged from one of our first mill projects. They measure roughly 9″ square and 8’6″ long. We used the sloped side of the stone to mount a copper conduit to. This prevented us from having to core drill through the center. A costly and risky task.

At Stone of New England we can present multiple options for any job. Our customer choose between these sills and other hand split granite posts.

We were able to remove concrete and most debris from the stone with out giving it an entire facelift. The lower stones are uncleaned.

My passion for stone has led me down some wonderful roads and this is proving to be one of the most exciting. I have discovered what I believe to be the largest collection of Native stonework in New England. Please join me as I share my discoveries at http://www.stonesofthepast.com

This is VERY exciting.

 

New England Fieldstone Flagging and Wallstone

The following work was done by Joseph Blue with Blue Stone Masonry. He can be reached a jcpblue@verizon.net or http://www.bluestonemasonry.com.

New England Fieldstone has been used to create this retaining wall. Heavily weathered surfaces have been preserved by our carefully salvaging techniques and Joe’s soft touch.

IMAG0430

Large chunks of New England Fieldstone and Reclaimed Granite were used for sitting areas around the perimeter of the patio. Irregular bluestone flagging was installed as the finished patio.

New England Steppers create this three step set. These stones were carefully salvaged from a 18th century Federal home in Dudley, Ma.

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-

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.

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 material would be ideal for siting walls or decorative features within a landscape or masonry installation.
