R E C L A I M E D   A N T I Q U E   S T O N E

Our goal when we first arrived in this part of Kansas was to rescue what we could of the remaining craftsmanship. Quickly disappearing, the prairie style is very simple and beautiful. It is a big job but we will relocate and reconstruct entire structures.

Restoration, Relocation, Installation and Design services available.
Not all reclaimed antique buildings are suitable for relocation.
Material can easily be incorporated into many different designs.

 

The old Herbin Homestead built in 1896 for French immigrants. Constructed of a local white limestone quarried not one half mile from its location. The lime putty was slaked in the creek along its eastern border and is of the very best quality. It has a grand entrance with a parlor, dining room, library, kitchen and four bedrooms. The wood work included doorways with transoms on the first level and pocket doors. The exterior was detailed with corbels and a fleur de lis pattern along the fascia. The quoins were all sawn and beveled. There are two spring courses at the sill levels and the field is a pitch faced block with sawn head joints. The interior wythe is an axe flattened block of random widths. (MORE PHOTOS) SOLD
The old Paschal place was built around 1895 by German immigrants. The floor plan was beautiful and pragmatic. A spandrel staircase rises along the south and east walls of the parlor. The dormers added light and head room to the efficient two story structure. The interior of the window jambs are bull nosed or rounded to let in more light as well. It was quarried locally from the post rock layer and carefully pitched and laid up by the talented masons of the time.

The history on this barn is rather vague. It is all that remains of a homestead long forgotten and mostly removed or demolished. The barn is constructed of Dakota sandstone a layer found locally. It has pitched quoins and axe flattened field. It is for the most part a straight ashlar pattern. It was added on to some time probably in the thirties and the arches and lintels were cast at that time.

The original building on the Dortland ranch. Constructed of local postrock in the late 1880s.

It is only 360 square feet and two rooms. It later became the bunk house for the hired help. (MORE PHOTOS)

Belle Barn This barn was built in 1892 by J.H. Courl. It was beautifully axe flattened by its builder and is hide polished from years of livestock rubbing on the corners. This is a look that cannot be duplicated. The original barn was very small and later had additions attached in 1902 by D.H. Fulton. The stone is on pallets and ready to transport. It was a simple 30 by 24 with four small windows and two large openings. It could be made into anything imaginable. (MORE PHOTOS)
