Sullivan Building Update: Vermont Verde Antique Serpentine
Posted on 01/30/2017
Last week we had a visit from Bryon Roesselet of Conrad Schmitt Studios. He informed us that the first floor banking hall flooring and wainscoting material that we had been referring to as “white-veined black marble” was, in fact, Vermont Verde Antique Serpentine! Discovered in the early 1900s, the beautiful marble is still be quarried today.
