Old Quarry, Town and Country

You never know what you’ll find down a quiet subdivision street in Town and Country. Passing down an old road in between squares of eighty acres of old farmland-turned-subdivisions, something doesn’t look normal.

An old aerial photograph from 1955 reveals that there was a quarry active since at least 1937, and it was still visible into the early 80s, when the first houses and street appeared in later aerial photographs.

Today, the rock wall, where the limestone was quarried out rom the hillside, is visible through the trees and in between the houses that lie in bottom of the quarry.

There was probably some exposed rocky shelf, and the quarrying commenced back in the early Twentieth Century. If anyone knows more about this site, please let me know.
