Now lets go back in time….the Chester Granite Works was a staple in Chester during the quarry era, here near the railstation the granite was brought down to the village via the Chester and Becket Railroad from Becket to work and polish the stone. Gravestones were also made here. It was also called the Chester and Hudson Granite Co. at one time. Learn more. Go see Dave Pierce at the Chester Railroad Station!
