One hundred years ago, Millstone Hill was the site of 75 active granite quarries, employing thousands of men and fueling central Vermont’s growth, cultural diversity, and prosperity. Waves of immigrants, primarily Scottish, Irish, Italian, and French Canadian, poured into the surrounding communities bringing with them their skills, talents, traditions, and dreams.
Join us in celebrating the historical and cultural significance of this amazing landscape.
What once echoed with the clamor of industrial activity is now reclaimed by nature and transformed into today’s man made natural wonder. RockFire will revive through live performance and exhibits the rich cultural sounds and spirit that these ethnic groups contributed to Central Vermont’s colorful granite past.
