TENNESSE VALLEY MARBLE ACQUIRES IMPERIAL BLACK MARBLE CO

Tennessee Valley Marble, Inc. of Friendsville, TN, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Imperial Black Marble Co. of Thorn Hill, TN. Imperial Black marble has been used in a wide variety of projects over the past 60 years, including the Tennessee State Capitol Building in Nashville, TN, the Plaza of the Americas in Dallas, TX, the Knox County Courthouse in Knoxville, TN, and the Cincinnati Cathedral in Cincinnati, OH.

Tennessee Valley Marble, Inc. is a quarrier and fabricator of Tennessee marble and other stones. The company has supplied many projects over the past seven years and is currently working on the fabrication of stone for the renovation of the National Archives and Records Building in Washington, DC.


From the Knoxville News Sentinel

The black wall in the News Sentinel's lobby was fabricated in Friendsville of marble quarried in Tennessee. The lighthouse on the wall, a symbol of the E.W. Scripps Co., formerly hung on the side of the newspaper's old building. 

The lighthouse is now mounted onto slabs of Imperial Black Marble from Thornhill, a community in Grainger County.

The marble was fabricated in Friendsville by the Tennessee Valley Marble Company and then installed by Stonecraft, Inc.

Imperial Black Marble is one of only two black marbles quarried in America and is an exclusively Tennessee marble.
