Overview

Founded in 1863 by German immigrants Ludwig Hilgartner and partner Gottfried Schimpf, Hilgartner Stone has been producing some of the nation’s finest stonework for over 150 years. The company began on Lexington Street in downtown Baltimore and by the 1880s had become one of the most prominent marble cutters in the country with the help of a new-fangled 30 horsepower stone cutting engine.
