The website above has a reference to Freedleyville in Dorset, Vermont, and the first marble quarry in the US. It says that the John K. and Wm. G. Freedley Co. of Philadelphia bought a marble quarry and opened other quarries in the area. There is a photo too. Interesting!

The source of this information is cited as being from: Vermont Place-Names: Footprints of by Esther Munroe Swift.
