4 Soapstone Sinks Found that were built in 1909
We have recently discovered several soapstone sinks around the New England area that were built in 1909. All of these soapstone sinks are still in use and the owners have incorporated these soapstone sinks into their kitchen remodel. We often get asked "how durable is soapstone?" These sinks are over 100 years old. Is that durable enough? One of these sinks were purchased by this man's grandmother and he remembers using these sinks when he was a boy. He said "I remember everyone getting together for the holidays and my grandmother always made us go to the soapstone kitchen sink and wash our hands before we sat down to eat Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner." These were great memories and I am glad I got to keep the sink!
These soapstone sinks age beautifully and never go out of style. Soapstone's durability speaks for it self and its natural beautiful color goes with any design. Therefore you never have to worry about it being a fad or the style changing. It is truely timeless.
