History of Bluestone Mining
Bluestone mining has been an important part of the economy in Northeast Pennsylvania and Southern New York for well over one hundred years.
Our quarry was one of hundreds in operation along the Upper Delaware River in the mid to late 1800s. Bluestone was valued greatly for its excellent qualities as a building material. Used in everything from sidewalks, steps and cornicing to entire buildings and bridges. Bluestone was shipped from the Upper Delaware River area to New York City via the Erie Railroad, Delaware and Hudson Canals. Bluestone is still highly valued today for use in landscapes large retaining walls and as a construction material in homes.
