Granite

From a Director's Chair by Bruce Jackson

“A few of the papers from the Archives holdings pertaining to the Bay of Fundy Red Granite Company. The granite sheds associated with this company were the first to be erected in St. George proper, and were located on what today is a large vacant lot just west of the Brunswick and Wallace Street intersection. This company was typical of many of the era, in that the name would change, and eventually it would become known as Milne Coutts Company.

Through the years, many of the original owners or employees would leave the Company and establish their own companies in St. George, other parts of Charlotte County, and Maine”.

Parts of the original Granite block retaining wall remain at roadside, and most were from rejected polished granite pieces. This company would later become known as Meating & Epps”.
