Meet the Masters Experience, Making of the National World War II Memorial, Tours of Hope Cemetery

Coaches have been flocking to our quarries since we first started the tours in the 1920s, beginning with busloads of visitors sent by the Chicago Travel Bureau. Today we offer groups guided tours of our quarry and factory, our Meet the Masters, a behind-the-scenes meet and greet with a master sculptor who will mesmerize your group with tales of his/her craft and our “Making of the National World War II Memorial” presentation where your group learns about our company’s role in the making of the memorial now on the Mall in Washington D.C.

We also partner locally to offer group meals featuring authentic, regional cuisine and can package guided tours of amazing nearby Hope Cemetery, featuring a racecar, soccer ball, airplane and many other unusual memorials.
