Experience Rock of Ages,
the world’s largest deep-hole granite quarry which is nearly 600 feet
in depth! The factory tour enables visitors to observe the master
sculptors and talented artisans as they create from granite enduring
works of art and precision products such as surface plates and machine
bases. At the Cut-In-Stone Center, learn to sandblast your own
souvenir! Barre, known as the “Granite Center of the World”, was shaped
by the granite industry and strongly influenced by the mix of native
Yankees and foreign immigrants who came seeking jobs in its quarries
and granite “sheds.”
The VISITORS CENTER features video presentation, computer-based exhibits, historic displays and outdoor granite bowling lane.
