We visited Rock of Ages. They have large quarries and utilize the granite primarily for grave markers and monuments. Our tour guide seemed to not know details about the history. We were unable to view some areas of the quarry due to the size of our group. It was interesting to see how the monuments are made and polished. They have a small museum in the lobby. Being able to see all of the areas (not limited by our group's size) and a more experienced tour guide would have improved the visit.

Excellent low profile production, nothing glamorous. It felt like a local off Broadway show. Had a good time.

We visited this place on October 11. There are guided tours at specific hours. Try to see the movie before the tour. This makes it easier to understand the explanation they give at the quarry. The organisation would help the visitors if they put information boards at the quarry with picture how they cut the stones. This makes the explanation during the guided tour more visible understandable. The free visit of the factory will be loud and is not very interesting.

Getting to see the granite quarry was something else. There is granite everywhere in the area and to see where it came from was interesting. We were told they have barely scraped the surface of this quarry and it has been in operation for something like 100 years. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable with these types of facts. Very, very interesting.

What was interesting to me was the tour guide. He has been working there since 1962 and now retired so he is very knowledgeable. He talked about how granite is quarried, the description of what goes into getting the granite out was very interesting. It is a very dangerous job and takes 2 years of mentoring before an employee can actually work in the quarry. The quarry is huge and we were told it could go for another 5000 years with the granite that is there.The grounds and surrounding area is beautiful. We did not take the factory tour but we viewed the quarry from above and saw the actual day by day work that goes into getting the granite. I recommend going to The Rock of Ages.
