Unique and historic. Learn how granite is quarried and fabricated into memorials, sculptures. Visitor center has movies and information. Bus tour of quarry. Opportunity to view production floor.
They offer tours of the old granite quarries (or you can explore on your own). Interesting history and some nice sights.
Neat little place to check out if you are wondering about all the granite around here!

“Located in Barre, Vermont, the “Granite Capital of the World,” Hope Cemetery serves not only as a place to remember those who work outside the craft and are buried there, but also as a tribute to the stone cutters and artisans interred amongst the sculptures they created while they lived.”

Point of Interest
“The Worcester Range rises across a valley from Mount Mansfield with Route 100 and the villages of Waterbury Center and Stowe between. Visitors focused only on Vermont’s tallest mountain may miss one of the state’s best hikes—and best views—to the right. At 3,538’ Mount Hunger is considerably shorter than Mansfield, but a steep, fun climb and wide open rock summit give it the flavor of a 4,000+ footer. Mount Hunger’s summit is wide open. Though common in other tall ranges (think the Presidentials), not many of Vermont’s peaks share an open ridge trail like this. Even Camel’s Hump, right on the Long Trail, sees the trail go up, over, and back down under treeline.”
