Just Like Plymouth Rock

All along the coast of Massachusetts there is grey granite.  Rockport, especially, is known for this high-grade rock (Get it? Rockport).  It's everywhere in the town.  There are two quarries that were running for several hundred years that provided granite to many building sites in the state and throughtout the country.  A special form of the sloop was designed just to transport the rock to faraway destinations.
