Amy at Dakota Monument Company was so great to work with. She was very knowledgeable, helpful, and super patient through this difficult process. She went above and beyond to get exactly what our family wanted for our headstone.

Amy at Dakota Monument is absolutely the best! Picking a headstone for a loved one is never easy, but she did amazing work for us and was so, so caring and patient with our ideas and changes.

I worked at DMC for 3 + years and can proudly say there is not a company around that truly cares more about the customer than they do. Countless times I have witnessed their caring and inspiring employees all the way up to ownership, go to extreme lengths to fulfill and exceed the customer’s request(s). They are flat out AMAZING at what they do throughout the entire process from the initial consultation to delivering the final product.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will this cost?

How much will this cost?

Due to the multiple factors that go into the pricing of a memorial such as; shape, size, granite color, finish of the stone, and ad-ons, it is difficult to put an exact price. However, we do our best to offer something for any budget, no matter how big or small. If you have something in mind, please feel free to reach out and we can get you a price quote.

How long will it take to be installed?

How long will it take to be installed?

With the supply chain issues that the world has been facing, it is difficult to get accurate timeframes. However, plan on ten weeks at the quickest, but know that it can take up to fourteen months for stones that come from overseas.

What’s included?

What’s included?

When we give a price quote, we try to include as much as possible so there are no surprises. Our prices will include engraving on one side of the memorial, design work on one side, delivery, installation, and foundation (granite or concrete depending on memorial type). The only things that are not be included would be cemetery fee’s (if applicable), sales tax, or add on items (vases, laser etching, custom design work, etc.).

How far away/Where do you install?

How far away/Where do you install?

With locations in Fargo and Mandan, we actively install across almost the entire state of North Dakota, the Northeast ¼ of South Dakota, and the western 1/3 of Minnesota. With our wide array of contacts in the industry, we can help find someone to install your memorial almost anywhere in North America.

Do you make these in house?

Do you make these in house?

Typically, we will order the shape and finish of the stone. Any hand tooling, sandblasting, laser etching, or adding textures are done in house. We have a unique blend of modern technology and old-world craftsmanship. Many times, you can see a hammer and chisel still being used today.

Where do you get your granite from?

Where do you get your granite from?

We use granite from all regions of the world. From as close as Milbank, South Dakota, to as far away as Norway or India. However, a majority of the granite we use comes from South Dakota or Minnesota.
