History


Established in 1917, Patten Monument has been serving Michigan families for more than 90 years.   From our humble beginnings as a single shop on Plainfield Avenue, Grand Rapids, Michigan, we have grown to become Michigan's largest provider of cemetery memorials.  With trained distributors throughout most Michigan cities, there is likely a distributor a short drive from you

In 1994 Great Lakes Granite Works was born.  This separate division focuses on various commercial products and residential countertops, vanities and fireplace surrounds.  Great Lakes has showrooms in Saugatuck and Comstock Park, and has become recognized as the leader in quality and service among home construction professionals in West Michigan.

Privately owned and operated, with operations headquartered in Comstock Park, Michigan, we are a full service company providing sales, service, design and installation of quality memorials.  We offer various sizes and styles, fashioned from a variety of stunning granites, quarried both in the United States and across the globe. We are also providers of traditional and enduring bronze memorials and plaques. 

Our experienced and dedicated staff understands the importance of providing the finest selection of granites for displaying distinctive designs; designs that best express our customers' wishes, culminating in a finished memorial delivered in a timely fashion.
