Here is a beautiful example of Richardsonian Romanesque Architecture. This is the public library in Warren , MA. The building was opened in 1889.

“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.

Historic Senoia ,Georgia

We were proud to have been asked to create Hand Split Granite Posts for the Historic Town of Senoia , GA. Our skilled stonesmith , Patrick Berthiaume , split these stones from larger blocks using traditional methods . These blocks were originally the foundation for the Odd Fellow’s home in Worcester, MA. One day we hope to visit these stones in their new home.

We were very fortunate to have been able to carefully salvage the East Brookfield Train Station. The station had sadly burnt down . The station was designed by Henry H. Richardson and stone was quarried from Norcross Bros. properties. Both Kibbe Brownstone and Milford Pink Granite were used on this station.
