If close, go see! Quarry tour is impressive. Hard to see in clear perspective because it is so large. Had a local tour guide for our bus who is very knowledgeable.

Very interesting! They offer a film, tour of the processing plant where monuments are made and a bus trip and guided tour of their quarries. Also there suggestion to visit Hop e Cemetery right in town was a good one, a true art form!

This side trip to Rock Of Ages was worth the few hours in our day. Pretty incredible to see how they have cut into the granite to remove large chucks of the material into workable sections. Very informative resource center with very good videos.

I never thought about where the granite for monuments comes from but this tour was very informative. Our tour guide, Johan, was great teacher and very funny. Follow up this visit by touring Hope Cemetery.

What an amazing place. The talent to cut and shape the beautiful granite that God gave us is a definite God-given talent. We were so amazed at the beautiful headstones and the amazing granite bowling alley constructed in the 1950's (seems like a good idea...More
