Marble used in local construction

Marble used in local construction Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The spring enclosure at the Kefauver homeplace, on Park Hall Road. The slab on top is marble.

According to Ed Itnyre, the current owner of the property, the enclosure was constructed at the time that Lockwood Rines owned the land. Rines and his wife Mary owned the Kefauver homestead from 1903 to 1916. Rines was also listed as the operator (Maryland Geological Survey: General Reports, 1909) or the President (1910 Census records) of the Washington Marble Company, the company who operated the mine on the Shifler land near Rohrersville.

No use of marble was made in construction prior to the Rines' ownership of the property so it can be surmissed that Lockwood Rines brought the marble from the quarry which would have been a mile from the house.



Photograph taken on the property of Ed Itnyre. The pottery shards on the slab have been found in the area.
