Traveling the Road My Ancestors Once Traveled:
Down in Quarry Land
Some of the jobs our ancestors worked was long and hard. Looking back over their lives I decided to trace their steps down into the Quarry they once worked in. As I traveled up and down the hills and mountains I learn and listen to the wind, felt the pain in climbing over rocks and sweating as I began my decent down into the pit. This limestone Quarry on Ruffner mountain was no joke. The 3 mile round trip taught me about being strong and staying the course. Seeing how and where my ancestor worked gave me more courage to keep on researching and to never forget what they accomplish in their lifetime.
Below are a few photos of the Old Limestone Quarry at Ruffner.
