Our History - Dodds Memorials

Our History

Most of the people in Xenia and the Miami Valley know about Dodds Memorials, because we have been in the area for over 155 years. Many, however, do not know the part that Dodds has played in American memorial history, constructing many notable memorials using granite from the quarries we once owned and operated. Dodds was established in 1864, by Scottish immigrant George Dodds, who came to America to assist his brother who worked at a marble company in Yellow Springs. George eventually started his own granite company headquarter in Xenia, Ohio. In 1911 Dodds organized the Victoria White Granite Company in New Hampshire. Around that time, they also acquired Milford Pink granite quarries in Massachusetts. Over time, Dodds owned and operated three quarries in New England; Victoria White, Milford Pink and Stony Creek. At one point we were one of, if not the largest memorial and granite company in the country. Many notable memorials were designed by and constructed out of the granite that was once quarried by Dodds Memorials. We are proud of the legacy we leave behind not only by creating so many historical memorials, but also by designing memorials for those families still today that trust us withgo their lasting visions of love. Below are many of the notable memorials Dodds has had a hand in.
