We saw a brochure for the Rock of Ages quarry tour and decided to check it out. We had no idea what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised with the visitor center, factory and quarry.
The visitor center houses a gift shop as well as a short video describing the history of the quarry. Across from there is the factory, which you can view on a self guided tour. Note that the factory closes at 3:30pm, so be sure to get there before then to visit. The tour consists of a bus ride up to the quarry. The quarry workers leave at 2:30pm, so we did not see them working. However, it was still interesting to see the quarry. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about quarry operations and had clearly been with Rock of Ages for a long time.
If you have an interest in seeing a factory or a quarry, Rock of Ages is definitely worth a stop. The tour isn't very long or expensive, and you leave with a greater appreciation for the production of granite products.
