BARRE GRANITE ASSOCIATION CELEBRATES 130th ANNIVERSARY

2019 marks the 130th Anniversary of the Barre Granite Association (BGA). The association was formed in 1889, when fourteen Barre area granite manufacturers met to plan for the industry’s first major trade show, the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

Originally formed as the Granite Manufacturer’s Association of Barre, the association merged with the Granite Manufacturers and Quarriers Association in 1931 and was renamed the Barre Granite Association in 1932. 

The BGA’s member firms have contributed immensely to the growth of Barre, as well as its diverse mixture of cultures, and the Barre area has become internationally recognized as the premier source of the world’s finest granite, granite art and artisans.

BGA Executive Director Doug Grahn commented on this achievement, “We are grateful for all of the men and women responsible for making the BGA successful over 130 years, as well as our local industry’s continuing resurgence. Our members, the board of trustees and all the employees of our member firms have continued to support the highest professional standard of crafting all their products with integrity and pride; as if they were being made for themselves and their families.”

This year’s anniversary celebration will culminate on Sunday, September 22 at 1:30 pm, with the Barre Granite Association-sponsored “Championship Day” at Thunder Road Speedbowl.
