DCR’s Halibut Point State Park will hold a brown-bag luncheon during a Quarry Labor Strikes! presentation.  Labor unrest and economic depression led to the end of the century-old granite quarrying industry on Cape Ann.  Bring your brown-bag lunch and join us in the newly renovated Visitor Center with Les Bartlett for a presentation on this historic time-period.  Visit:  halibut point state park@mass.gov
