McLeod and Romberg Stone Co.

McLeod and Romberg Stone Co.

In 1929, brothers David Hazen, Reese, and George McLeod joined their friend Carl O. Romberg in establishing a stone masonry business. They operated out of Bladensburg, Maryland, and their work was sought after up and down the east coast. McLeod & Romberg worked on a number of government contracts, including many post office buildings. In 1961 they constructed additions for the World War I Second Division Memorial on the National Mall.

At Dumbarton Oaks, the firm took on several projects in the gardens during the 1950s and 1960s. Their contributions included curbs, steps, inscription panels, and scrollwork for the Pebble Garden parterre.
