Wyant & Son Monument Company was founded in 1962 by Mike Wyant at his home in Dallas, NC. Mike and his wife, Polly, had five children. Their oldest son, Leon, inherited the business from Mike when Mike suffered a stroke and was no longer able to manage the business. In the 80s, Leon moved the business from Mike and Polly’s home in Dallas to a new location on 321 in Gastonia. After more than 30 years at that location, Wyant & Son was moved to the current location on Tulip Drive, due to reconstruction of the highway.
