Maine Granite Industry Historical Society

Welcome to th Maine Granite Industry Historical Society

The Maine Granite Industry Historical Society was founded in 2002. It aims not only to preserve the history but also the practices and trade of traditional granite quarrying as was practiced in Maine. The main focus of the Society is on the history of quarrying on Mount Desert Island itself, at places such as Somes Sound and Sergeant's Point.

The Society takes great pride in listing the iconic buildings around the country that were built using Maine granite, or at least using predominantly Maine granite.
