Freshwater Stone sends a 65-ton megalith to its new home in Portland.

Orland, Maine: Early Thursday morning, three semi-trailers rumbled into the yard of Freshwater Stone to take center stage in Maine’s construction industry for a moment: they were there to transport the three sections of a massive, 130,000-pound stone bench that will be the centerpiece of a renovated courtyard at Canal Plaza in Portland.

Last November, the massive rock was selected personally by the landscape architect in charge, the nationally-known Michael Boucher, along with Canal Plaza’s owner, and Jeff Gammelin, owner of Freshwater Stone and its quarry in Frankfort, Maine. Not Your Average Park Bench 8.21.2017
