akota Classique Rock is a natural extension of owner Milton Morris' business as a heavy highway contractor and materials mining. As Morris Inc. surface mines granite boulders and breaks them for various aggregate jobs, Milton was always struck by the unique color and beauty found in every boulder. He was also familiar with the process of carving letters in stone. It was a natural fit for him, to turn the seemingly ordinary granite boulders into beautiful carved landscape features, welcoming people to his home. Soon after neighbors and friends noticed his carved stone and requested he carve stones for them. This was the beginning of Dakota Classique Rock.
Focusing on the rock, Miltons' ideas grew. He bought a wire saw and polisher to cut and do finish work, and later a blade saw. He brought together a team of creative people who shared his enthusiasm for using what the glacier had left when it carved the Missouri River, scattered on the prairie- Beautiful Granite Boulders.
Today, Dakota Classique Rock specializes in making one of a kind glacial granite products, including Memorials, Stone Signs, Fireplace Mantles and Hearths, Rock table tops, Fire Tables, and much more.
