We understand that selecting a monument for yourself or a loved one can be an intimidating experience. We are here to listen to your needs, make suggestions, and follow your budget. 




Brookings Monument first opened their doors in Brookings, SD in 1951 and continues to be a successful, locally owned business today. People often comment about the little white building on South Main Ave. with

gravestones out front being there as far back as they can remember.

"It's been there forever."

Lisa (Minor) Friedrich started her work as a memorial consultant in 2012

and Dan Billet began his work with Brookings Monument in 2006. Lisa and

Dan are both life long Brookings area residents and are proud of their retail business history.

The Brookings Monument showroom offers a selection of granite from all

over the United States as well as Norway, India, and Canada. The client's selection is limitless with a vast array of color, styles, finshes, and designs.

Used for monuments in the cemetery or in a business setting, each

purchase is customized as ordered. Granite and limestone benches are on display with choices for cremation. Lisa is able to sit with you and together

tell the memory of your loved one on a MonuVision computer design. 

You will be able to see the creation before you sign the purchase order.

Working with the Sunburst Memorials granite company based in

St.Cloud, MN, your satisfaction guarantee is backed by a company

founded in 1917.

"Great staff. Made our decision making a lot easier for a difficult time. Made sure we were absolutely and completely satisfied with our purchase!"
