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, finishes, 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 will be happy to help you design a customized

memorial that will tell the memory of your loved one for years to come.

With our MonuVision computer design system you will be able to see

the creation before you make a purchase.

Working with the Sunburst Memorials granite company based in

St.Cloud, MN, your satisfaction is not only guaranteed by a company

founded in 1917, but also by your locally owned monument company.
