Collection Overview: Consisting of 98 postcards, memoranda, letters, legal papers, photographs, and ledgers, the Montgomery County Historical Society's Stoneyhurst Quarries collection highlights the story of Stoneyhurst Quarries, a stone quarrying business once located in Bethesda, Maryland. Founded in the 19th century to provide stone for the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, it closed as a quarrying business until 1921, when, after her husband Frank P. Stone's death, Lilly C. Stone at the age of 61 re-established the quarrying business. She worked along with and later partnered with her son J. Dunbar Stone, who then passed on the business to his son John Stone.
