Post Rock was first quarried around the 1860's. All of
our posts come from original fence lines and are quite
old. Although the average weight of each is 350 to 450
pounds, there are some in the 200 pound range, and some
that exceed 500 pounds. Again there are no two alike.
With the drill marks, the various fossils and the variety
of lichens and mosses, they are all very unique and one
of a kind. The uses for these posts are unlimited. They
can be left whole, cut, shaped, carved or drilled to suit
your individual needs. And when you incorporate them with
some of our other limestone products, which come in many
sizes, shapes and thicknesses, you'll find this will help
to create that special project.
images for close up |Block
The block we offer all come from the remains of old homes,
barns, walls etc. and come in many sizes, shapes and thicknesses.
Fossils are embedded throughout most of the pieces. They
range from the older naturally quarried pieces, to hand
worked and shaped block in a wide variety of styles. Some
of the block is available in large quantities, while others,
due to their uniqueness, will be more limited. As our
business grows, so will our inventory. Be sure to watch
our web site for new products.

Our slab pieces also are embedded with fossils and come
in all sizes, shapes and thicknesses. Their uses can range
from garden steps and walkways, to benches, table tops,
and much more. Again these can be used with our other
products to create larger creative areas. These too are
historic pieces from old sites. Like most of our products,
many are covered with lichens and mosses. And some of
them have notches, holes or other markings created by
stone masons, many years ago, during construction, depending
on the use or application. These would make any project
special and unique.
images for close up |Shell
Shell Rock got its name from the abundance of fossils,
and is usually loaded with them. They also come in different
sizes, shapes and thicknesses and are great for veneers,
floors, walkways and more. Lichen and moss can also be
found on much of this product. But they can easily be
pressure washed, when desirable, to clean and bring out
the beauty as well as highlight these wonderful fossils.
Many stone sealants and coatings are available on the
market for protection and appearance purposes.
images for close up |Specialty
We have a variety of special items, from lintels (headers),
quoins (corners), sills, and other very unique pieces.
Some are single pieces, one of a kind, and others may
have two or more matching pieces. Some items such as quoins
may come in larger quantities. As we add to our inventory,
you'll be able to go over our list of items and choose
the style and quantity that suites your needs. Most of
these items will be sold as packages, having come from
one particular site around which you can create your special
project. . You will be the only one with that particular
piece or group of pieces. Your project will truly be an
images for close up |Sandstone
Another rock product we have on hand is sandstone. This
stone comes from the same general area in which we acquire
our limestone products. We are collecting a variety of
slabs and other various size pieces. These are sometimes
referred to as moss rock because of the abundance of colorful
mosses that often prefer the sandstone over limestone.
They make wonderful yard decor. Although limestone is
more common, and is the stone of choice for most buildings,
homes, barns, walls, etc. sandstone was also used. We
will also be adding other sandstone items, such as block
and other products from the remains of old structures.
A great deal depends on the geographical location, and
what type of stone is readily at hand. In these areas
we have found that sandstone was used for much of the
same building needs and many structures have a mix of
limestone and sandstone in the construction. This makes
a beautiful combination.

Concretions (round rocks)
These unusually shaped rocks, known as concretions may
be formed from any of a number of minerals. Concretions
from this area consist primarily of calcite, limonite,
barite, pyrite, and silica, the last in the form of opal,
chert, chalcedony, or quartz. They come in a variety of
colors. Some are made up of combinations of minerals creating
bands or layers of mutable colors. The shapes vary from
round or oval, to long and narrow. These concretions can
range from the smallest, being as small as a head of a
pin, to many feet across weighing many tons. They were
formed many thousands of years ago from air pockets underground.
Then, sediments filled in the pockets and hardened. Being
harder and denser than the surrounding material, they
readily withstood weathering and erosion. These are rare
and limited, but we have a nice selection of sizes and
colors in stock at this time, at least while they last.

These are not natural caves that most people are familiar
with. These were some of the very first dwellings or shelters
built by the first settlers to the area. "Caves"
is the term given to them by the people in the area. They
provided protection from storms and tornadoes and stayed
cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The barn was
the next structure to be built. This was to protect their
stock and crop items as well as equipment and supplies.
The house usually came last. At this point the cave would
serve as a root cellar for the storing of canned food
items, roots, fruit and other staples.
We are working on making these caves available for your
own personal root or wine cellar. They would be dismantled
and reconstructed at your desired location. More information
on this will be forthcoming on this site soon.
