Monticello In The Snow

Laying down the reclaimed Southern Yellow Pine Decking

Decking almost complete on The North Pavilion

In 1772, Thomas Jefferson starting building his beloved Monticello.

Today it is one of the most cherished pieces of American architectural history.

When the architects and builders responsible for maintaining the historical integrity and beauty of Jefferson's legacy needed to replace some of the original walkway, they turned to the Jarmak Corp.

We sourced some reclaimed heart pine from the historic Rhode Island Locomotive Works in Providence, RI.

We were able to make this donation because of the continued support from our customers.

Rhode Island Locomotive Works

Number 587, a steam locomotive built at the Rhode Island Locomotive Works

Number 587 was used on a Wabash branch line well after most railroads had eliminated steam power.  The 2-6-0 was built in 1899, construction number 3140, and scrapped in 1955.   One of the 15 Moguls built for the Wabash in 1899, number 573,  has been preserved at the St.Louis Museum of Transportation.  A total of four Rhode Island locomotives have been preserved.
Thank you for all of your support this year!
