The Vermont Marble Museum is great look at an industry which was key to public buildings nationwide. It shows the impact of emigrants who were craftsmen in monuments and ordinary laborers. There was an artist in residence who carries on the tradition.

Decent place to stop. Small gift shop, wish they would carry a magnet for the fridge since that's what I collect. The staff was helpful and friendly. And the wings at Franklin's was good.

Their museum is a real gem. There are neat things for kids and also multi-media exhibits. It represents more than just marble. There is art to see; fossils to touch; kids exhibit and even nice history of the industry and area of central Vermont.
