The first Labor Day in the United States was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City. It became a federal holiday in 1894, when, following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland put reconciliation with the labor movement as a top political priority. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike. The September date was chosen as Cleveland was concerned that aligning an American labor holiday with existing international May Day celebrations would stir up negative emotions linked to the Haymarket Affair. All 50 U.S. states have made Labor Day a state holiday.

Stoneyard.com, the country's leader in reclaimed Historic New England Fieldstone, is pleased to announce the release of a 3 Part Specification that offers two firsts. This document addresses both types of veneer, and it also addresses genuine Historic New England Fieldstone.
Adhered thin veneer is natural stone sawn to one inch thick; light enough to meet building code requirements for use as interior siding without a supporting masonry shelf. Anchored building veneer is a 3-6 inch full thickness stone. It is used on exterior applications and installed with masonry ties and a weight bearing stone footing.
New England Fieldstone is America's oldest building stone, found only in New England, and visible in walls dotting the landscape. Over the course of hundreds of years of farming and inhabitation, the stones littering the soil were pushed to the surface and gathered a unique patina of weathered colors.
"New Englanders take pride in our stone and know it is a unique feature of our heritage. Sawn thin veneer is light enough to adhere to the wall, but that also makes it affordable to ship to projects throughout the country that want our unique color blend," said John Croteau, President of Stoneyard.com. "Project owners can also customize the fieldstone pattern with our 5 distinctive shapes: Round, Square & Rectangular, Ashlar, Mosaic, and thin stacked Ledgestone."
"The market is shifting away from artificial stone siding due to downsides like solar fading and ocean spray / road salt decay, ” said Michael Bangs, Dealer Sales Rep for Stoneyard.com. "It truly is a green building product, not just because of LEED certification, but because it represents a lower cost of ownership. That's the shade of green customers care about most."
A 3 Part Specification is a pre-formatted document that architects use to insert relevant details into project plans.
