Honoring the Granite Workers of the Penobscot Bay Region

We like to say that we value work but we rarely honor labor.  So it was gratifying to walk the waterfront of (aptly named) Stonington, Maine and see this tribute to the granite workers of the region.  Granite from nearby Vinalhaven Island built the Cathedral of St. John in New York, among other landmarks. Their story is told at the Deer Isle Granite Museum, open daily in July and August.
