Michael L. Brenner


Houston County Monument Works has been serving families since 1987. Owner Michael Brenner is an artisan with the mission of creating monuments unique to each loved one's memory.


"Families depend upon me to render a dignified, fitting memorial for their loved one. It is my mission to see that I give them a memorial created with every attention to detail.  Families share special memories with me as we design the monument together; it is very much a family-involved process."


Unlike other  monument companies, Brenner's designs are "Double Processed" which reflects the deepest, most clear cut letters and designs. Memorials stand out from the rest in the cemetery, and are clearly a superior rendering.


"My families deserve the best, and that is what I deliver."
