“The Offspring of Pure Yankee Tenacity”

Central Vermont was built upon the granite industry, the offspring of  pure Yankee tenacity and immigrant fortitude. Rock of Ages, founded by  two native Vermonters and one Scotsman, epitomizes the rich cultural  heritage of Barre, Vermont. Rock of Ages represents a living industry,  not a museum or showcase, but a working, breathing entity that gives  rise to some of the finest artistry in stone that our guests have ever  seen.  We invite you and your family to experience Rock of Ages. Our narrated  shuttle tours take you to the world's largest deep-hole, dimension  granite quarry-a quarry nearly 600 feet deep! Peer into its depths;  observe our quarriers as they cut blocks from the sheer face and see the  mighty steel derricks that tower above the surface and which are capable  of lifting up to 250 tons.  Our artisans will amaze you when you take our self-guided factory tour.  From hand pitching to laser etching, the factory tour allows you to  observe the oldest and the latest: hand-dressing and sculpting  techniques that have remained virtually unchanged for centuries  juxtaposed against modern circular diamond saws and laser etchers.  Once you've seen it, you'll want to TRY it-our NEW Cut-In-Stone Activity  Center offers you the chance to learn to sandblast. Make a souvenir as  you make a memory! Then bowl on our outdoor granite lane, watch our  video, enjoy our exhibits and browse our gift shop, featuring  Vermont-made granite gifts, Vermont specialty foods, clothing and  souvenirs.
