Granite Specifications Granite is purchased by the truckload from Swenson Granite Works in Barre Vermont, USA. Established in 1886, Swenson is the largest and oldest granite quarrying operation in our country. Swenson has provided granite for prestigious projects including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Library of Congress, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Pentagon. Swenson quarries stone to our specifications, sawing the post tops for a level cap mount, flame treating the flat sides eliminating sawn marks and giving us the natural stone face surface on the flanks to create the Yankee look. Yankee braces are fastened to granite with rust free stainless steel wedge anchors.
