Tour One of Vermont’s Incredible Natural Wonders

Visit Barre, VT – known as “Granite City” - which was once considered the Granite Capital of the World. The premium granite in the area attracted thousands of immigrant stone carvers in the 19th and early 20th century, and is home to thousands of granite sculptures created by master artisans.

Experience the scale, power, and artistry of a fully operational granite quarry at Rock of Ages. In operation since 1885, Rock of Ages is the largest operating deep-hole, dimension granite quarry in the world! Tour the state-of-the-art Visitor Center and learn about the quarrying and manufacturing processes, before taking a guided tour of the nearly 600 foot-deep Smith Quarry, a truly awe inspiring sight. Before departing, watch artisans using hand tools alongside computer-guided, diamond-tipped saws and precision grinders from an observation deck above their factory floor. Learn about the area’s famous master artisans and see thousands of elaborately carved and poignant memorial designs at Hope Cemetery, which is known as one of the country’s largest outdoor sculpture museums.

Included in the day’s activities is a 3-course lunch at nearby Millstone Hill. This family-owned and operated inn and event venue offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, delicious menu, and inspiring views from their hilltop location.

Tour Cost: $159 Per Person Includes:

• Admission and guided tour of Rock of Ages quarry and Hope Cemetery

• Luxury Motorcoach Transportation from Concord, NH

• Services of a Professional Tour Director
