PROCTOR-The production company for the Sony Columbia picture,
"White House Down", directed by Roland Emmerich is coming to
Proctor in the coming weeks to conduct research on the Vermont and
Tennessee marbles used throughout the White House.
For the film, they need to recreate several rooms in the White
House, as well as the US Capitol.
West Rutland, Danby and Rochester marbles were used extensively in
the White House, along with the majority of landmark buildings in
The Museum is presently the only place with a collection of the
marbles available in large format for viewing and study. This
resource is one reason so many are working to keep the Vermont
Marble Museum open.
The Vermont Marble Museum is housed in the original Vermont Marble
Company production facility in the center of Proctor. The building
is a two story 90,000 sf industrial building located near
Sutherland Falls on Otter Creek.
The Museum collection includes, historical artifacts, minerals
& fossils, sculptures, photos, a theater and a retail Marble
The Museum is handicapped accessible.
