Visit to the Quarry

On October 20, 2022 we stopped off after a hiking expedition to the Keystone Arches, a series of bridges erected in 1839-40 to build a railway connection from Boston to Albany. Impressive terrain and extraordinary bridges.

On our return trip we made a quick stopover at the Chester Granite Company where the granite for our new entrance was extracted from the earth and finished into the stone pieces you’ll now see at our church entrance. (Here’s a map showing the location of the quarry.)

Louise took the picture. Lucy Eldridge and Jane Peck are in the picture (and so am I).

Unfortunately my friend the office manager was not in the office so we didn’t go inside the fabrication shop. But we got a great view of the quarry itself and many precut pieces available for sale.
