"Washington Marble Co" - artifact

Porch trim with "Washington Marble Co." on it. Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


In the early 1970s Ed Itnyre found a piece of unpainted porch trim remaining on the farm, with "Washington Marble Co." pencilled on it. It is believed that Lockwood Rines added the wrap around porch to the house on Park Hall Road, and as he was employed at the Washington Marble Company quarry at the time, there is an interesting connection between the company and the owner of the house.

Harold Smith, a local man who was a friend of the Shiflers on whose land the quarry was operating, reported that Shifler and Rines had a serious "falling out" and Rines left abruptly. The cause of the dispute is unknown.



The writing on this piece of trim has faded so much it does not show up on the photograph.
