Historic Marble from the
RI State House Available
Farm Fresh RI discovered a tremendous amount of marble that was destined for the RI State House when it arrived from Georgia in the 1890’s and landed at an enormous cutting facility (built just to cut the State House Marble) in the Valley neighborhood of Providence. Several years ago Farm Fresh bought the exact 3.2 acre cutting facility site and built our new headquarters. See this link for the full story and details on how to try to get some fantastic historic materials for your next project.
