Rock of Ages

Day 4 is a wrap. This morning we visited the Rock of Ages granite quarry and mill in Barre, VT. There we were able to look out at the quarry, hear from Rock of Ages safety director and director of visitor services. We visited the mill to see workers moving large slabs and carving pieces. Then we went to Hope Cemetery in Barre to see some of the completed work. Following our site tours, we had a quick bite to eat back in Montpelier before heading over to Oneonta, NY for the night. Tomorrow we will wrap up the tour at Wightman Specialty Lumber in Portlandville, NY.
