About Woodruff's Downriver Stone Design

The experts at Woodruff's Downriver Stone Design promise to deliver Experience, Trust, and Value. The building at 2836 Biddle Avenue in Wyandotte originally served as an office for attorney Ari Woodruff. In 1920, a monument business was started by Tom Woodruff's maternal grandfather, John Raubar, in Detroit.  The Wyandotte branch of Raubar Granite opened on Biddle Avenue in 1949 and named the Woodruff Monument Company. OwnerTom Woodruff renamed the company in 2003 to merge the Woodruff Monument Company with the countertop and cabinetry division and then again in 2018 to add the family name. Woodruff's Downriver Stone Design remains family-owned and operated for three generations. The members of the Woodruff family are proud to be business owners in Wyandotte for the past 100 years.
