At the Becket Quarry a little known second quarry operation was located called the Newell Brothers Quarry. Located just over the Becket town line in Otis this smaller operation also used the Chester Becket Railroad track to get it granite to Chester. Following the Old Motion woods trail to Staple Rock Trail look to your right, at this point the quarry pit still exists with beautiful granite blocks looking over the Mass Turnpike with views of the Otis Windturbine close by…the original Bowe Quarry (Chester Granite Quarry) was near the turbine and of course just a bit further the present day Williams Stone Quarry, all in Otis.
