Marble Colorado is certainly off the beaten track. Marble from this quarry went to build the Lincoln Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. That alone is worth the trip. Just think about the journey from the quarry to Washington, DC that all this marble made to be part of history and to be viewed by millions upon millions of people from all over the world. The hills of Marble had the world’s largest marble deposit and as the mill thrived, so did the town. The demand for marble fell during WWI and the population dwindled to about 50 residents. Below you can View the ruins of the marble finishing mill along with the Hays Waterfall and the town of Redstone Colorado close by.
