Maryville Monument Company was founded in the early 1920’s. Then located on West Main Street next to Saint Andrews Episcopal Church (now Broadway Avenue) the company was named Maryville Marble Company. The marble industry in Blount County was in full swing with at least five quarries located near Friendsville and Louisville. As logistics improved, granite was also introduced to the Blount County monument business and the name was changed to Maryville Granite and Marble Works. In 1943, the Staley family purchased Maryville Monumental Works and it was moved to its present location at 804 East Broadway Avenue.
The current owner, Jeff Wallace, purchased Maryville Monument Company in 2008. With over 30 years of experience in construction, the industry came natural to him; however, he called upon partner, Donnie Poteet of McCammon-Ammons-Click Funeral Home, to broaden his knowledge in the memorial business. Jeff then became sole owner in 2013.
Over the years the owners and names have changed various times; however, many things have remained the same. The office team has continued the established filing system and can pull sales contracts dating back to the mid-forties. The shop team has continued the quality craftsmanship on both granite and marble monuments, all of which are sandblasted on-site with precise detail. One hundred years later, we still take pride in each memorial as a lasting tribute to your loved one.
While Jeff has been the owner of Maryville Monument Company for over 10 years, he has over 30 years of experience in the construction industry.
