Hall's Quarry, Mount Desert

This record was added to Maine Memory Network through the efforts of a student.

Description

Cyrus Hall's Quarry on the edge of Somes Sond, Mt. Desert Island.

The quarry's location alongside of Somes Sound proved very beneficial, as it allowed the schooners to land very close to the quarry to load the granite and transport it to various ports.

The granite industry brought a great deal of money to the Island, and many of the stonecutters who came to work in the quarry still have relatives in the area.
