When specifying building stone for structures that are expected to endure for generations, the natural choice is always Indiana Limestone. Many colleges and universities across the country boast Indiana Limestone buildings that are 50-100 years old and older in many cases. They continue to use this venerable material from Indiana in their new construction, allowing them to match existing buildings and to maintain the context of their campuses.
Many other buildings throughout the nation have a long history of using Indiana Limestone as well. From private residences, such as the Biltmore Estate (1895), to public schools, churches, courthouses, and museums, a variety of monumental buildings across the country have been built with Indiana Limestone as their first choice of building material. And when they need additions to their existing locations, the Indiana Limestone industry is able to provide a pleasing match to their original stone.
Another outstanding example is the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. Teddy Roosevelt set the cornerstone for this building in 1907, and Mason Foreman Joe Alonso set the last stone there in 1990. The National Cathedral and many other buildings serve as a reminder that Indiana Limestone projects have endured from past to present generations, and will continue to serve future generations as well.
