Thank You for allowing us serve Lebanon since 1951!

Helping Archive History


We shape carve all memorials where needed, at no additional cost, because we believe this is an important part of the memorial.


Etching allows photo-realistic images in black granite.


Utilizing different hand-tooled techniques, we can achieve a variety of textures, adding uniqueness to each piece of work.


From mailbox inserts to landmarks, business signs, estate markers and sculptures
