They mine it over in central Virginia along the Slate river of all places.
I wish! They are beautiful. Not too many out here in the desert, our alternative is tile.
slate and metal roofs are my favorites!
As a matter of fact...yes we do! :) Both our house and barn roof are slate, and they do last just about forever!
A bloody pretty church
The house I grew up in had a very old slate roof. We've put metal on where it's practical, and 50 year shingles on the rest.
