Local and immigrant men made up the workers at the Granite Quarry in Hall Quarry.

Men from Scotland, Italy and Sweden came to Mount Desert Island and other area granite quarries to find employment. Hall Quarry had several boarding houses that served as home for these men.

In 1905 when this picture was taken the Arthur McMullen Granite Company ran the quarry operation.
