The Discovery + History of Georgia Marble with Bill Cagle

Marble Valley Historical Society President Bill Cagle covers the history of Georgia marble, from the early uses of the stone to the Georgia Marble Company’s thriving industry. Following the 7 PM lecture, head to The Vault to be the first to tour Tellus’ exhibit Georgia Stone: Building a Nation, a special exhibit that explores the history and impact of the Georgia marble and granite mining industry. See how Georgia stone industries helped build our nation from the ground up – from paving our roads to building national monuments like The Lincoln Memorial, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the New York Stock Exchange, to name a few.
