About this title

Synopsis:

The marble deposits in Vermont are some of the richest in the world. Vermont’s Marble Industry takes readers deep inside the quarries of the Green Mountain State to show how stone was sawed and raised from the earth to be cut, polished, and carved into monuments and structures that today are spread across the country. During the late 1800s, the marble industry flourished and the mighty Vermont Marble Company was started by a local family. The patriarch of the Proctor family built the Vermont Marble Company into the largest stone company in the world. They hired immigrant workers to fuel the company, and the region became a melting pot of nationalities. After World War II, demand for blocks of heavy dimension stone diminished and the slow demise of the Vermont Marble Company began. Vermont’s Marble Industry proudly tells the history of the marble workers, their skilled craftsmanship, and the communities that relied on this industry.

About the Author:

Catherine Miglorie is a resident of Proctor and the second author of a local history series, Marble Minutes. She culled images from the Proctor Historical Society’s extensive archives to chronicle the vibrant history of the Vermont marble industry.
