The slate industry in the United States is concentrated in the «Slate Valley», Vermont in the north-east of the country. Slate was first quarried in 1839 at Fair Haven. An influx of immigrants from the North Wales slate quarrying communities helped to developp the industry.
Today, more than 15 quarries continue to produce slate in a range of exclusive colors, unique in the world. In Vermont, you can easily identify up to 10 different colors of slates even if the most common are Black, Green, Purple and Red.
