This quarry is the largest open faced granite quarry in the world. It is so large that it can be seen from space! The granite from this quarry can be found in the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C. among other monuments and memorials across the nation. The quarry is located just outside of Mt. Airy and it is free to view. There is an observation area that you can drive to get a great view of the quarry. You can park and walk out to take pictures. I advise anyone viewing it to bring sunglasses because it is bright especially when the sun is out. If you are visiting Mt. Airy, this is a must see place,
