our first time seeing a working stone quarry. we got there early but they opened the store for us and we watched a very informative 16 minute film about the quarry. we didnt stay for the van tour to the quarry itself, but we did the free self guided tour thru the working factory. he guide was very helpful and pleasant and answered any questions we had. probably not interesting for younger children, but we loved it

We found Rock Of Ages from TripAdvisor. Located in Barre, Rock of Ages harvests granite from the local mountains and sends their product all over the world. Their main focus is to create memorials for families. There is a tour available and it is worth the ticket price. They take you by van to the top of the quarry by a guide who explains the whole process. In addition, you can get a behind the scenes view of how the granite becomes a product. It is a fascinating process. The workers obviously take pride in their work.

If you are in the area make plans to visit RoCK oF AgEs!!!

The tour was short but interesting. The guide was knowledgeable and always had an answer for the group's questions. You take a small van to the site so there isn't much walking. The site and the vast granite deposit is awesome. On weekdays you can see what they are doing in the 'sculpting' area. There is a short film too part of which is really an advertisement for their memorials.

Interesting tour, very informative and knowledgeable docent. Tour starts at the Welcome Center, then board a small bus for a short ride through Graniteville village to the quarry and back to the center. Takes about 40 minutes and well worth the time.
