Rolling Rock Building Stone

In November of 1955, Homer Weller and a hired hand began to quarry building stone in Berks County, Pennsylvania. With two hammers and one truck as their only equipment, they relied on strong backs to quarry, cut, and load all the stones by hand. In their first year they sold 100 tons of building stone, and growth has been more non stop ever since, now totaling over 60,000 tons yearly. The year 1966 brought with it first time Homer-made Natural Fieldstone available for building stone. This seemed to spawn yet more growth in sales. By December 1974, the company became incorporated under the name Rolling Rock Building Stone -which comes from the local people using the name "Rolling Rock" to describe the nearby rock formations which are now company-owned.
