About Us

Much like the monuments we craft, our personal approach and attention to detail have withstood the test of time.

Our History

At Patten Monument, our humble beginnings date back over one hundred years. Back then, we operated our business out of a one-room shop on Plainfield Avenue in Grand Rapids, Michigan. With only a three-person team, we had little idea what was in store for the future of Patten Monument. All we knew was that we were determined to put our heart and souls into the business.

In those early days what we lacked in size and reputation, we made up for with work ethic, personal service and a love for monument making.

It wasn’t long before our craftsmanship and honest values earned us a reputable name among stoneworkers in Grand Rapids and West Michigan. As word of our service continued to spread, Patten Monument continued to grow.

Now fast forward 100 years to today. Patten Monument is the leading cemetery headstone provider in Michigan and Northern Indiana. With nine showrooms and distributors across the Midwest, our team is fully capable of handling your complete monument, headstone and marker needs.

And while our team has grown and our processes have been fine-tuned, the core values at the heart of Patten Monument remain the same.

From our headquarters in Comstock Park, Patten Monument is still privately owned and operated. Our commitment to our customers and their satisfaction only grows more important with age. Today we are able to serve you more personally and efficiently than ever before.

Our commitment to our craft and our attention to detail also continues to endure. Technology and software advancements have improved the efficiencies and capabilities of monument making, but they haven’t altered our standard of product. Before any memorial leaves our yard, we take the time to inspect every detail by hand. Just as we did one hundred years ago.
