The rarest to find and the most desirable of reclaimed stone was quarried in the 1800's in upstate New York. We at NEAC scour the N. Y. Countryside finding and harvesting hand cut and hand quarried bluestone from this period. Our reclaimed vintage stone products are not only the best but the most beautiful! The chisel marks, hand feathered edges and time worn surface are impossible to replicate at any price. We have been fortunate in locating bluestone from 2 ft wide up to 12 ft wide with lengths running 2 ft long to 10 ft long. The most common pieces being in the 4 ft to 5 ft wide ranges from 2 ft to 6 ft long. Most pieces being a few inches thick on smaller pieces up to 8" thick on larger pieces. Our antique, reclaimed blue stone curbing offers the same beauty hand carved product and one of a kind uniqueness.

We have come into a supply of reclaimed blue stones for a variety of uses. In the past these vintage blue stones have been used for sidewalks, walls and buggy steps. Below are photos of some recent work using these reclaimed vintage blue stones.

As you can see below we have a walkway, stone wall cap and patio venues using reclaimed blue stone sidewalks and reclaimed blue stone curbing. These pieces will come anywhere from 2' wide to 5' long and are usually 3" to 4" deep. This park was donated by Doris Duke the tobacco heiress.

Blue Stone Wall Stone

Early 1800 hand chipped and quarried Reclaimed Blue Stone Wall. We have aquired a limited quantity of this reclaimed blue stone wall which is extremely rare and difficult to find. This blue stone wall was used as a reservoir wall (dam). Blue stone today can be used in so many ways from a sidewalk to a table top to a wall or a cap stone, even a patio, wall, dam, a stairway or stepping stone. The uses for blue stone are unlimited but the supply is not. Blue stone is disappearing fast. We have spent 8 months almost full time acquiring the product we now have. Blue stone is the rarest and most beautiful of reclaimed stone. Take advantage if while you can.
