Steve and Beth Carroll have just celebrated the tenth anniversary of Carroll Memorials. After a successful 30 year career as a stone mason, Steve decided in 2004 to examine the possibility of becoming a monument builder. (Steve knows about rocks.) Understanding that the retail business was much different from the masonry trade, he attended the Monument Retailers Course at the Elberton (GA) Granite Institute to learn about the retail monument business. In the spring of 2005, he and Beth established Carroll Memorials Inc., located at 309 South Main Street in King. Their goal was to provide the area in and around Stokes County with an attractive, comfortable, indoor monument showroom where people could come to select a beautiful granite, marble or bronze memorial for their loved one. They offer their clients the most ancient of materials while using the most creative and innovative techniques in the monument industry. Their mission is to help others by fostering a personal relationship in order to create a memorial that tells the story of a person’s life. Carroll Memorials is also noted for the quality of the flagpoles and flags they sell and install. Beth retired in 2008 after teaching kindergarten for 32 years and began taking a more active role in the business. The past ten years have been spent developing their reputation as caring, reliable, and professional memorialists. Their knowledge of the memorial business is continually enhanced by their active membership in the Monument Builders of the Carolinas and the Monument Builders of North America.
