What does it take to create a monumental tradition of building excellence? In part, it’s an unshakable foundation of superlative stone products – the remarkable strength, beauty and permanence only genuine Indiana limestone provides. It’s also the gift of generations of skilled quarrymen, finishers and the management and sales teams supporting them.
Perhaps most of all, it’s the recognition of the architectural community and the markets it serves that this stone is without equal in bringing distinguished building design to dazzling life.
The record speaks for itself. Thirty-five state capitols are built of our Indiana limestone. The Indiana State War Memorial and the University of Illinois Monument display it unforgettably. So does Biltmore, the fabulous Vanderbilt mansion in North Carolina. So do the Pentagon and the National Cathedral. So do Yankee Stadium and the Empire State Building.
Icon after revered icon, across the North American continent – as well as great contemporary buildings like Manhattan’s prize winning 15 Central Park West multi-unit residential structure. Indiana limestone is the native material of masterpiece American architecture. And it’s at the disposal of today’s great designers to build the classics to come.
