Quarry in Slatersville
« on: September 13, 2010, 03:30:59 PM »
I heard that there is an abandoned quarry in Slatersville. Its in a secluded area and inaccessable by car. It was last used in the Civil War era, when they used to sharpen weapons there. Apparently its unchanged from when it was last used. Has anyone else heard about this?
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.

No, but I wouldn't doubt it.  There are more of those around than you think, but if machinery is still present that could make it quite interesting.

I hide in the shadows and babble about old things.  I appear to most new members of IB.  I might beat you with my cane.

Went up there recently but couldnt find anything like a quarry. Planning a return trip once the temp is above freezing.
