Vermont Marble Museum: Hall of Presidents

Field review by the editors.

Proctor, Vermont

Granite gets all the glory in Vermont, but the state has a me-too marble industry.

Marble is much more than tombstones and naked Greek sculptures -- as you'll learn in 17 rooms of exhibits at the Vermont Marble Museum. The Main Street bridge down the road from the museum is made entirely of marble. The cheese slicer in the museum gift shop is made of marble. Every bust of every Commander-in-Chief in the museum's Hall of Presidents is made of marble. Without the magic ingredient of ground-up marble, toothpaste and chewing gum as we know it would be impossible.

Take in the museum's World's Largest Marble Exhibit, then take a quarter-mile walkway to an open pit marble quarry.
