Six-Generation Family Tradition
The Monacelli legacy began with Bob Jr’s great-great-grandfather, Georgina Monacelli, who was a stone cutter in Italy. Georgina’s son, Dominic, carried the stone cutting tradition to America by working in a Red Granite quarry in Lohrville, Wisconsin. Dominic moved his family to Lannon, Wisconsin in 1929. Dominic’s son, Oswald (Ossie) began working as a stone cutter in 1935. He established O. Monacelli Lannon Stone Company in 1948, which adjoins the quarry property that we continue to mine today. In 1971 Ossie’s son Bob, Sr. owned and operated Natural Lannon Stone Company.
Bob Sr’s, son Bob Jr., began working for his grandfather and father, at the age of 14 years old. Upon graduating high school he continued working in the stone industry for several local Lannon Stone companies. In 1998 Bob Jr. had the opportunity to start his own Lannon Stone business, and with the support of his family and friends, Monacelli Stone Company Inc. opened its doors for business on April 1, 1998.
