Many people think that soapstone is something that is new but that is not the case. Soapstone was used for Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. The hall was built between 1732 and 1756. Soapstone was used for the water table, quoins, and column bases. When making the Hall the builders chose soapstone because of soapstone’s durability and unique properties.
Soapstone has been used in many other historical buildings as well.
Here's What Our Clients Have To Say
Greg and Wendy have been delightful to work with from start to finish. They worked with us to select a stone that would work well for us and allowed us to position the best sections of the stone to show it off in our kitchen. We love the soft, natural look. It is exactly what we were looking for and Soapstone Werks really knows their product! Our favorite thing about soapstone is the beauty of the stone.
