Five generations of Indiana stone cutters and carvers who have helped create some of the most beautiful buildings in United States architectural history.

This 28-minute video documents five generations of Indiana stone cutters and carvers who have helped create some of the most beautiful buildings in United States architectural history. With a mixture of interviews, historic photographs, archival film clips and period music, the program reveals a unique culture that values artistry and skill in stone work, yet is humble about its contributions to the building of America. Shot on location in Indiana, North Carolina, Chicago, New York, Washington, and the Florida Keys, the documentary transports the viewer from warm tropical seas of 300 million years ago to enormous underground quarries being worked by stone cutters today. This program is for anyone with an interest in U.S. architectural history, geology, art, and unique artisan cultures.
