A mausoleum by Dakota Granite is designed with a focus on craftsmanship and aesthetics. Beauty, security and versatility are interwoven into the creation of above-ground mausolea built to accommodate individuals, families and even community cremains. Each mausoleum is pre-assembled by our third and fourth generation stone craftsmen who build each unit as if it were their own family memorial.

Reverence in the treatment of cremains is the philosophy that Dakota Granite takes seriously. Our philosophy motivates our design, craftsmanship and use of materials because of the special needs and options created by this type of decision to memorialize. Whether it is a family or community columbaria, Dakota Granite will manufacture a custom columbaria that will meet the tightest industry standards.

A granite bench provides a comfortable place to rest while visiting a loved ones final resting place. A memorial bench can also replace the traditional memorial headstone in the cemetery. Granite memorial benches have many applications: golf course, parks, schools and the back yard. Granite benches will remain maintenance free for decades.

When communities need to memorialize members who have given their lives generously or sacrificially, a civic memorial can provide a focus for commemorating significant people and events.
