Here is the Dorset marble quarry, the oldest quarry in the USA. One of the most famous swimming holes in the State of Vermont. If you are around this summer, you may want to check it out. It takes about an hour to drive there from Williamstown. This one is famous, featured in the NYT magazine. No need for me to shoot and post any pics when you can get a “panorama image.” On the web you can find many articles about the historic site. There is a second swimming hole above the one on the side of route 30, where people used to skinny dip.

About two miles north of Manchester in Dorset on route 30.
