Pioneer Rock and Monument is a family business
specializing in custom designed headstones and grave
"We take pride in fine art designs, affordable
prices and caring service. We make each stone
one at a time, with love."
Dealing with the passing of a loved one is always hard.
We just hope that we can help a little by making the
process of marking a grave a little easier by treating
customers with love, respect and friendliness.
Pioneer Rock and Monument has been in business since 1985. We opened the business out of our garage,and saw a steady stream of orders. In 2002 the business moved into a new 2000 square foot shop, better able to handle the increasing business. In 2004 our son Ben joined the team.
In 2007 we began selling stones through the Internet. Since then we've shipped headstones to three countries and forty-eight states. In 2013 our daughter-in-law Marintha began learning the trade along with their daughters, Taylor and Taryn, making Pioneer Rock & Monument a family business consisting of three generations.
Most monument shops are retailers, and do not
manufacture the stones themselves. At Pioneer Rock
and Monument, on the other hand, we make each stone
in our own shop.
Our shop is located in Goldendale, Washington, about
2 hours east of Portland, Oregon. We have had
customers drive from as far north as Alaska, as far east
as South Dakota and as far south as Las Vegas in order
to purchase a stone from us. Careful study of the stones
featured in our Gallery reveals a special skill and an
artistic flare not seen in many other monument shops.
You can see why people have come such a long way to purchase a very special stone from us.
If we can be of service to you in any way, please Contact us and see what we can do for you. If you've never ordered a stone before please read our How to for tips on buying stones and dealing with cemeteries.
