The Tennessee marble industry was established in 1838 when this distinctive stone was shipped to the nation’s capitol for the construction of the United States Capitol. Tennessee Marble has been used so extensively throughout Washington D.C., it is simpler to list those buildings without this timeless stone than the many buildings that utilize it on exteriors, floors, counters, elevators, and walls. Among those buildings that reflect the warm tones of the unique American marble are the National Gallery of Art, The Smithsonian, the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, the National Cathedral, and most recently, the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center.
In addition, you will find Tennessee Marble in virtually every significant historic public building in the United States. Tennessee marble(s) are dense, durable, distinctive, water-resistant materials available in earth tone colors of pink, brown, gray and beige.
