During the 19th century, New England had hundreds of quarries throughout the states. Many of these quarries produced materials for very local markets, while others had larger operations that shipped materials south along the Eastern seaboard. During quarry operations, large pieces of split off block were products and dumped into large piles, known as tailings. Most of these quarries closed by the early 20th century, leaving large tailing piles across the U.S. Over the last century, these discarded slabs of granite have had time to weather beautifully, thanks to nature’s elements. Today, Stone Farm harvests these stones to repurpose them as pieces of history for your home.
