Granite Quarries Tour

August 5th tour cancelled due to high water in the quarry — no plans to reschedule at this time

 

with Leonard Nason, owner of Granite Works LLC

Meet at 414 Winthrop Street, just west of the quarry site, toward Manchester, at the home of Lenny Nason. Wear walking shoes.

Sunday, August 5 at 1 pm – CANCELLED

Here’s your chance! One of the quarries has been drained, allowing us to see carvings in the remaining stone as well as equipment used in harvesting the granite. Stone produced from the quarry was used in the Manhattan Bridge Archway; the Maine State House; the Pilgrim Monument in Plymouth, Mass.; and the New York State Capitol plaza in Albany.

Tours are weather permitting and last about one hour.
