LYNNFIELD, MA-- On Friday, September 16, 2011, Olde New England Granite (ONEG) hosted its second annual "Granite Day," which the company deemed a success. The family-owned business opened its gates to contractors, landscape designers, architects, builders and homeowners to view the most recent harvest of aged and weathered reclaimed granite products at its Granite Farm in Lynnfield, MA. Among the inventory are hand-split curbing, vintage cobblestones, antique pier and foundation blocks, original and hand-split posts, columns, monuments and an array of other unique and historic granite pieces.

Granite Day offered a perfect opportunity for ONEG to showcase a new granite collection: stone from the historic Essex Merrimac Bridge. The company reclaimed pier blocks -- assembled of the attractive and still popular Cape Ann Rockport granite -- from this now defunct structure, which was constructed in 1882. According to ONEG, the centerpiece of Granite Day was a striking outdoor shower installation -- a fully functional water feature integrating granite and "green" aesthetics. This highly unique stone application was positioned in the front of the Granite Farm's courtyard -- one of many rotating installations that ONEG features on a regular basis.

"I think this is a nice way to introduce new people to an old, time-tested product, and this granite day won't be their last," said ONEG Sales Manager Brad Parker.
