Fodor's Review

The attractions here range from the awe-inspiring (the quarry resembles the Grand Canyon in miniature) to the mildly ghoulish (you can consult a directory of tombstone dealers throughout the country) to the whimsical (an outdoor granite bowling alley). You might recognize the sheer walls of the quarry from Batman and Robin, the film starring George Clooney and Arnold Schwarzenegger. At the crafts center, skilled artisans sculpt monuments and blast stone, while at the quarries themselves, 25-ton blocks of stone are cut from sheer 475-foot walls by workers who clearly earn their pay.
