Portland CT … we sit along side the Connecticut River and were at one point in time a major supplier of brownstone for New England. The quarries, now water filled, still exist and they have even turned one into a water adventure park.

Most timber around here is a mixture of Red and White Oak, walnut, maple, pine, beech and hickory.
