Buy a Paver

Set your thoughts in stone

commemorative pavers at mmgm

Purchasing a paver is one of the easiest and most memorable ways you can be a part of the MMGM story.

In the true spirit of being Maine to the core, the pavers that grace the grounds of the Arthur M. Hussey Memorial Rock Garden are from the historic North Jay Granite Quarry located in North Jay, Maine. Each paver is unique, holding interesting geologic features such as pegmatite veins, cherry red garnets, and “xenoliths,” i.e. foreign rock that was entrapped into the original granitic melt.

Pricing ranges from $500 to $2500, and availability is limited.

For more information, or to speak with the museum about a paver dedication, please contact Celesse Perkens, Membership and Development Coordinator: 207.824.3036, or email
