Smith Granite Company


The Smith Granite Company on Granite Street was the first of the major granite companies. It was a local establishment. It roots were in the building trade and it grew to specialize in monumental work. Statues and bas relief work are the hallmarks of their work. Many exquisite monuments of modest scale characterized the Smith Granite Company market share. Between 1886 and 1896, 112 Civil War monuments were produced at a total of $202, 598.
