First and Oldest Marble Quarry in the United States
*** 1785 ***
The Dorset Quarry is one of the Top-Ten Summer Swimming Holes in North America – it’s known for its depth and cold water! Marble from our quarry was used to build the New York Public Library and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts along with other famous structures.
The Hollow School... 1832
“Peggy” Lincoln Beckwith (1898-1975), the great-granddaughter of Abraham Lincoln flew her biplane from the meadow behind this one-room school house and parked her plane next to the school. The school rests on Hildene, the Lincoln Family Summer Home in Manchester, Vermont. Very few know this interesting story!
