BARRE, Vermont — This city of 9, bills itself as the "granite capital of the world," its economic foundation built early in the 20th century with the light gray rock from nearby quarries. But the title is starting to ring hollow. Granite manufacturers here, nearly all of which specialize in making headstones and memorials, find themselves battling to compete in a rapidly changing market, hurt not only by a rise in cremations but also by the lower prices of their foreign competitors. It's the top gray granite in the world. For decades, the granite industry made Barre, near Montpelier, a boomtown and Vermont's biggest melting pot, drawing immigrants from Italy, Ireland, Poland and Canada. During their heyday, in the early to midth century, the manufacturers here employed about 3, people.
