Georgia Marble Quarry Tours

 

Once a year the public is allowed to tour the largest open pit marble quarries in the world and that is during the Georgia Marble Festival. The Festival celebrates one of Georgia's most prized and beautiful natural resources available. For decades Georgia Marble has been mined and used to create historic architecture around the world. This year's tour offer individuals a chance to view marble in its natural form, visit several historic sites associated with the marble industry, and a chance to learn about the history of Georgia Marble.
