We welcome you to have a look at photos from our past. Laurin Ottawa Monuments was initially located on George street before our move in the 1950’s to our current location on York.
In the early days monuments were produced from local stones with limestone monuments being the most common. The stone was soft and easily carved. Unfortunately, in recent years the onset of acid rain and other contaminants has dramatically harmed these stones. Many stones have aged centuries in only a few decades.
In more recent times the stone of choice for a monument is granite. It’s among the hardest of all stone and is immune to acid and many other elements.
