Venable Brothers

William Hoyt Venable (1852-1905) and Samuel Hoyt Venable (1856-1939) were involved with the Stone Mountain quarrying industry. The Venable brothers were the sole owners of Stone Mountain and much surrounding land which they purchased in 1887 at a claimed cost of $350,000.

The Venable brothers and their heirs owned the mountain until it was purchased by the state of Georgia in 1958.
