    We need definitve photos (from the web I hope) of colonial pavers.

    I've looked up Colonial Williamsburg, Salem, etc. I'm finding darker colored brick shapes of cobblestone. ( I'd have thought they'd been square. ) But no quality pictures or proof of authentic general use.

    Anyway ... any info especially photos source would be greatly appreciated. A source for material would be doubly nice... authentic I mean. Otherwise I can quote dark colored holland stone.

    It's a red brick mansion... curved entry.... square paths. Real gentry folks. Go figure. But it's very neat.

    Thanks PEACH

    We installed pavers for a woman, who had an authentic 1760 reproduction home. Everything in her home and landscape was period. We used tumbled pavers and gapped them out so she could grow moss? don't ask me? But, it looks good. If I can find a picture I'll post it.

    Peace,
