Where can one find someone to make an out-of-the-ordinary gravestone? One involving actual stone carving?

So, the wife has bought us cemetery plots in the rural graveyard where all her ancestors back to the civil war are buried. Most of the graves are pre-1920, and the headstones are unusual and greatly varied. It would ruin the aesthetics of the place to plonk down an ugly standard modern gravestone, so I want to locate someone that will make us cemetery monuments that hark back to earlier times. Does anyone do custom carved gravestones anymore? If you know of someone, clue me in. We are in the upper midwest US.
