A COMMON MISCONCEPTION is that all stone is the same.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. 

Harvested from an area known as the Niagara Escarpment, Eden Stone is fortunate to have access to material that is time tested as well as aesthetically driven.  The mineral composition as well as the tight compaction of these layers resulted in an extremely dense, high strength Limestone.  This is known as Type III, High-Density Dolomitic Limestone. Per ASTM testing standards, Type III represents the highest performance characteristics of a limestone material. This gives us the ability to execute unique applications for commercial, residential, governmental, recreational, and retail clients worldwide.  All of our natural stone products feature a broad range of colors, finishes, and textures to help create the perfect showpiece that suits your style.

Our company is a 4th generation family business with close to 185 employees.  We maintain year round mining operations in 8 unique mines throughout southeastern and central Wisconsin. Our quarries in Eden, Oakfield, Chilton, Stevens Point and Valders, Wisconsin are able to produce and offer our customers the largest variety of architectural, landscape, veneer, thin veneer and dimensional cut limestone stone in the region.

It is our objective to be your partner in the stone selection process. We will be by your side to develop a relationship that will last as long as our stone will.
