This museum offers educational and cultural instruction of granite quarrying which began in the Sate of Maine as early as 1840 and is ongoing tody. The museum works to collect and preserve any type of material perttaining to this industry. It houses hundreds of tools used by quarrymen, blacksmiths, stone cutters and carvers of the past. On display are over 350 historic photos, company ledgers, books, Union badges and constitutions of the era. It also houses the largest collection of books relating to the granite industry and family genealogy writings from the families of the men who worked the quarries.
