The Griffith Quarry Museum is housed in the original Penryn Granite Works office, built by Welsh immigrant Griffith Griffith in 1864. It contains some of the original office furniture, information on the Griffith family, the history of the Penryn-Loomis Basin area, and the granite industry.
A major supplier of granite for many of California’s buildings, including the State Capitol in Sacramento, Griffith Quarry’s history dates back to its founding in 1864. The museum houses exhibits reflecting the history of the granite industry in this region. The park boasts three miles of nature trails that offer views of the old quarry sites.
