Downtown Northampton is a geological museum, displaying a variety of rocks that have been quarried, sculpted, and incorporated into the buildings. Many visitors to the city walk by these rocks without noticing them at all, or seeing them only as architectural features, not museum offerings. This guide has been created to help you see the geological wonders that support, decorate, and enhance Northampton's buildings.
