About us

If it can be “set in stone,”  we can do it!

  Pat Snyder has been in the monument business in Carthage since 1980 and since 1993 he and his wife Marcia have owned and operated West Chestnut Monument. Since that time they have built it into the premier monument and engraving business in the Carthage area. Pats knowledge of monuments and memorials is unsurpassed by anyone in the area. He will guide you through the entire process from selection of the monument, design of the engraving, and final placement of the monument. All engravings are custom designed and engraved in house on a state of the art monument program as you watch so that any design elements you would like can be incorporated into the monument for your approval before the first cut is made.
