Synopsis: The exquisite pink granite quarried at Stony Creek, Connecticut, has found its way into many of America’s greatest landmarks. The physical and social history of this unique natural resource is traced from a small coastal village to the grand monuments of the 19th century, reflecting the growing forces of immigration, labor, and evolving technology. Historic photographs evoke the hard-working community of Italians, English, Irish, Swedes, and Finns who mixed their languages and cultures into a uniquely American experience.

About the Author: Deborah Deford is a recipient of the American Antiquarian Society Fellowship for historical research. She lives in Stony Creek, Connecticut.
