Biographical or historical data :

The Acme Granite Company was incorporated on August 4, 1894. E.E.Arey, C.N. Scott, W.A. Scott, C.W. Scott, and H.W. Scott were partners. John Brechin later invested money in the company. The six acre quarry, formerly the Preston & Whitcomb quarry, was located on the Lewis Keith farm on Millstone Hill. The specialty of the quarry was dark gray granite or Dark Barre Granite. Charles N. Scott (b. 1874) was president and general manager, while H.W. Scott (b. 1870) was its treasurer and legal advisor. James Brechin (b. 1865), born in Aberdeen, Scotland, was the estimator, and supervised cutting and shipping. The company seems to have dissolved in 1910, as there are no more entries for it in the Barre City Directory.
