"OUR MARBLE - OUR HERITAGE"


Did you know: Most of Pickens County's early industry revolved around the marble industry.  Polycor Georgia Marble is located in Marble Hill near Tate.  For decades Georgia Marble has been mined and used to create historic architecture around the world, including the Archives Building in Atlanta, the New York Stock Exchange, the Supreme Court, the Lincoln Memorial and our local Tate Elementary School.  The marble is also used for tombstones for the United States Military at Arlington National Cemetery.  Most of the marble is white, but there is also very rare pink marble.  It is one of the few places in the world where pink marble is found.
