Georgia Is Now The Granite State

Yes, "The Granite State" is the official nickname of New Hampshire, not Georgia. But given that a Georgia firm has been selected to help manage sources of domestic Granite for the King memorial - and some of the Granite may end up coming from Georgia ... at least for the time being, Georgia is our Granite State.

From an article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

Builders of a $100 million memorial to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. have picked a Georgia-based granite firm to help line up sources of domestic stone for the monument.

Southeastern Granite Co.'s selection as a broker makes good on earlier promises to use domestic stone for a major chunk of the project, though key elements will still use imported. It also boosts the chances some will come from Georgia, officials said.
