On Granite Ground

Record #:
Mount Airy, model for the town in Andy Griffith’s classic comedies, may also be known as site for the largest open faced granite quarry in the world. Locally, Mount Airy’s North Carolina Granite Corp.’s immense supply has been used in its high school’s façade. State projects include the Wright Brothers Memorial. On a national scale, it has been used in projects such as the Arlington Memorial Bridge.
