BARRE, Vt. (AP) - A granite quarry and business in Barre will be offering a new presentation this spring on its role in making the World War II Memorial in Washington.

Officials say Rock of Ages created the granite archways of the memorial, which represent the Atlantic and Pacific theaters of war in the years 1941-1945. The eagles that flank the main entranceway of the memorial also were hand-carved in Graniteville.

The new presentation will be offered to bus tours, starting on May 15, when the Rock of Ages Visitor’s Center reopens for the season.
