Rocks are great building materials. My grandfather was a stonemason,
and although most of his work involved cut stone, mostly limestone, he
said one of his greatest pleasures was to build a wall or road by
fitting randomly shaped rocks together like the pieces of a puzzle.

Hard to match the durability of granite. In rural Connecticut you often see
rows of granite fence posts off in the woods somewhere with no buildings
around. Once there was a house or farm there with a fence around it. The
fence, the farm are long gone and just the granite posts left.
