On May 29, 1914, Miss Virginia Porter and the E geography class took a field trip to the Maine and New Hampshire Granite Corporation in North Jay. One of the students, Fred H. Moulton, acted as the group's guide.
The students saw how the stone was cut, transported, and finished as well as how the tools used in the process operated. It was voted an enjoyable and educational experience for all.
In this image of the group, student Blanche Fitzhenry is "eclipsed" by Miss Porter's bow.
