For any artisans, contractors, or consumers who might want to purchase a piece of Swanton history, several blocks of Swanton Red marble are still available for cutting, according to Robert Pye, director of the Vermont Marble Museum. Swanton Red is used for fireplace surrounds, mantels, hearths, floor tiles, walls, and specialty gift items, such as salt and pepper shakers, coasters, baking boards, vases, and lamps — some of which are available for purchase in the museum’s gift shop.
