Marbles of Maryland Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

      



In 1896-98 Maryland quarries, chiefly at Cockeysville and Eakles Mills, produced from $110,000 to $130,000 worth of marble each year. These figures dropped from 20 to 40 per cent in the next seven years, when the rebuilding operations after the Baltimore fire of 1904 brought the demand in 1905 and 1906 up to $138,404 and $176,495 respectively.
