Although salvaging and re-using stone produced centuries ago by local craftsman is an important part of preserving our local heritage, recycling stone is not limited to rescuing abandoned stone structures from bulldozers.

One of the richest limestone deposits is found in the "driftless area" or uplands of southwest Wisconsin. It is no accident that Frank Lloyd Wright chose this material in many of his native projects, particularly Taliesen. The beauty which limestone provides is unmatched by any other building material and provides an indigenous theme correlating perfectly with Wright's entire philosophy of design.
