Eckles Mills Quarry, 1906

Eckles Mills Quarry, Washington County, 1906 Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The most successful quarry at the present time is that situated near Eckles Mills, Washington County, operated by the Washington Marble Company. The rock, as here exposed, occurs in several well defined beds, lying at a moderate dip, which yield excellent decorative rock. The material varies somewhat in color in the different beds but large slabs, suitable for interior decoration, have been obtained, which in their soft, pleasing tones and agreeable markings rival many of the better known foreign marbles. The product of these quarries is already on the market and the present demand forecasts the establishment of a good industry at this locality.
