There was a time when we could take visitors on to the quarry or into the fabrication shops, but not today. All quarries in the US are under the jurisdiction of the US Bureau of Mines and operate under the rules of the Mine Safety and Health Act. Therefore, as an active "mine" we have limits on what we are allowed to do, for your safety.
We have built an observation deck where you can see nearly all the activities and are close enough to be plenty startled when we set off an explosion—which occurs several times each day. The observation deck can be reached by car, and access is open without restriction each day that the quarry is in operation, including weekends, during the daylight hours.
You are invited to spend some time there, and see us at work. For additional insights, you are invited to visit the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History, located downtown Mount Airy.
