Creativity Without Compromise

When distinctive stonework is essential to your home or project, Hillsgrove can make it a reality with commitment that matches your own.

 
A Passion for Stone

For three decades we have crafted award-winning stonework on behalf of exacting homeowners, architects and builders. Our passion for achieving your vision, regardless of the challenges, has earned Hillsgrove a reputation for craftsmanship and personal attention.

Classic Artisanship

Here amid centuries-old quarries in the Ossipee Mountains, we’ve gained deep expertise with cut granite, quarry stone, ledge and fieldstone. Our artisans learned their masonry technique the time-tested way – passed down from hand to hand, without compromise.

Quality stonework evokes emotion, and Hillsgrove delivers
