Continuing clockwise on the trail around the main quarry, passing the blacksmith shop you come to yet another smaller quarry (these are called motions) complete with its own derrick, one of the best preserved. Perfectly cut granite blocks can be found here also.
We hope you all had a great time at our group hike 11-06-21at the Becket Quarry. It was once the Chester & Hudson Granite Company Quarry, from 1895 to 1945. It’s great reliving history in the outdoor museum high up in the mountain. #hilltownhistory can be found everywhere. Thank you to hike leaders Kim, Karen and Michele.
