Granite, the earth's most plentiful and durable stone, finds new and surprising applications in a modern world millions of years after it was formed deep within the earth.
Traditionally used for beautiful memorials, today granite is making its place in homes and businesses as more and more people are discovering the beauty and versatility of this natural product.
Granite can be used to achieve a warm or cool look; it can be rustic or refined, casual or elegant. Because it is one of the hardest materials available, it is also virtually maintenance free.
Inside the home or office it is the medium of choice for kitchen and baths, floors, foyers, furniture and for a host of accent pieces. For example much of the new terminal at Burlington International Airport is composed of granite, including this elegant washroom counter.
Outside, it enhances any setting - be it a birdbath or bench in a quiet garden, a corporate sign in a busy metropolitan area, or a grand stair case in the hills.
In this web site you'll be introduced to some of the granite products manufactured by the outstanding members of the Barre Granite Association, a trade association of Vermont granite manufacturers and quarriers established in 1889. These products are available through your local supplier of nature's stone products.
