This year is starting out great!   Visitor Center is now OPEN weekend days 9AM-3PM.  Exhibits include the Granite Quarrying industry, WWII Military use and research, and some of the common plants and animals you might encounter at the Park.  Big thanks, to The Friends group!  Friends is supportive to the Park in multiple ways, but especially engaging visitors.  I am currently working with DCR to create exterior interpretive signage at the entrance, the Visitor Center, and the Quarry and working on a summer line-up of programs. This is possible due to Friends for all the historical information and financial support!  Many Thanks!!!
