Burlington Granite Co.
Office: 124 College Street, Burlington, Vt.
Works: Burlington and Barre

The important monumental works of the Burlington Granite Co. was established in 1895, and its
management has since developed such enterprise and capacity in the production and erection of
artistic monuments and cemetery work of all kinds as to have built up a trade that extends generally
throughout Vermont and Northern New York, and even to more distant sections of the country. The
facilities of the house embrace commodious office and salesroom in this city, where some work is
accomplished, and it is connected with a completely equipped manufacturing plant at Barre, Vt.,
owning one of the best granite quarries, where monuments of any required size are turned out. The
company has a large number of original and special designs in fine granite and marble monuments, and
new designs are made to suit the ideas of patrons upon application. Being manufacturers the lowest
prices possible consistent with quality are named to customers, and references will be furnished to
those wishing to investigate the character of the work already put up. Many beautiful monuments
have been erected in the cemeteries of the state by this company, and others are now in process of
completion. The enterprise is controlled by a strong company, of which Col. C.D. Gates is the
manager. They employ only experienced granite and marble monument cutters, and are progressive
business men, and those who contemplate the erection of anything in the way of cemetery work will
find many advantages by making contracts with the Burlington Granite Co. A visit to their showrooms
and yard will prove the above facts. Estimates furnished if desired.


Best regards,
Debbie
