Kanawha Stone
50th Anniversary

Join us in #AlmostHeaven

September 30, 2023

Founded in 1973, Kanawha Stone Company has helped to change the face of West Virginia, the Ohio Valley, the Appalachians, and the Mid-Atlantic region over those four decades. From small community projects and road repairs through major energy projects and creating bridges that connect communities, Kanawha Stone has been there to grow our region. None of this would have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our employees throughout the years.

As we celebrate 50 Years of Excellence in Construction, we invite you and your families to join us at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve for a day of celebrating, reconnecting with past and present team members, and looking forward to the years ahead of us while reminiscing on the one’s past.

Kanawha Stone will be celebrating all day on September 30th. Join us for the full day, the morning, or the evening. Whatever suits you best! We will have a full list of available activities as well as accommodations provided for you to choose.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
