Vermont Marble Company, early in the 20th century, was considered the largest U.S. corporation in the world! Marble products were being made from outcrop marble as early as 1785. The first commercial quarry was opened in Dorset - the first quarry in Vermont, and believed to be the first in North America.
A wonderful American natural resource, Vermont marble products of all kinds are now found around the world. And it has been quarried, carved, otherwise prepared and shipped for hundreds of applications in Vermont by immigrants from all over the world.
The museumís historical exhibits include early photographs, samples of many products and is rich with information about the evolution of the marble industry. Learn about owners, investors, innovators and the hard working people that quarried and moved huge slabs and produced everything from Supreme Court pillars to gravestones. It is all centered right here at the exhibit location in Proctor, Vermont.
