Building A Character Filled Wall With Reclaimed Granite Blocks

July 10, 2013
BY KCharles

Granite was the first industrial strength building material used in America. Throughout New England, large pieces of this granite were formed into blocks, sills, and lintels which were used to create railroad trestles and cellar foundations. Today, we find this to be the perfect medium for a reclaimed granite block wall filled with character and patina that simply cannot be replicated elsewhere. The particular stone used in this wall, which was built outside of the Boston area, is known as Rockport granite from the Cape Ann area of Massachusetts. This unique stone is characterized specifically by its large black flecks.
