About the Event
The Museum guesses that you have noticed the pink granite of Mattapoisett’s curbs and sidewalks, or noted this granite lining the sides of the Cape Cod Canal, but did you know that it was from a quarry right on Mattapoisett Neck Road? On Saturday, October 14 from 10 to 11:30 am, those interested in a tour of the quarry will meet at the entrance to the quarry trail on Mattapoisett Neck Road (about 100 yards south of Rte 6) to begin. Street parking will be available. the tour will be given by Land Trust President Mike Huguenin.
