I believe slate was once quarried in northern Michigan and that it was a dark gray slate. Maybe that's what was on the roof.

This local landmark was built in 1907 as a lumber office in northern Michigan. It is composed of gray granite and sandstone and believed to have had a slate roof. We have no evidence of the slate to determine its color. Other local masonry buildings in town have had grey slate roofs. Should we assume the same on this building or are there other factors we should consider? Cobbs & Mitchell Bldg.
