The quarries at Millstone Hill produced marble and granite. They still do make cut stone here. But a lot of the mountain is covered in abandoned mines, quarries, and tons of rusting equipment, cables, winches, spars and on and on.
In recent times it’s also become covered in hiking, biking and recreation trails.
Artists have been busy up there and if you keep your eyes peeled, you’ll find all kinds of little things.
The quarries have beautiful deep water which are like amazing stone swimming pools and you can go for a dip.
You can also just walk around to cool off. All the stone and water make it feel like you’re standing in front of a fridge door, even in the heat of summer. What a nifty place!
