      The Granite Cutters’ Story: A History of Vermont’s 200-Year-Old Granite Industry with Scott McLaughlin

      The history of Vermont’s granite industry is the history of Vermont and, in many ways, that of the nation. It is a tale of hope and loss, of eager immigrants and underemployed Yankees chasing a dream, of promising developers, of talented artists, of hard-nosed businessmen, and of accomplished men and women that shaped our nation’s cemeteries, parks, and public architecture. Learn about the people, tools, and places behind one of Vermont’s oldest and most important trades - the granite industry
