Quarry Park


Quoted from Stearns County website:

Quarry Park and Nature Preserve, formerly known as Hundred Acres Quarry, is a great addition to the Stearns County Parks System.

Granite - formed by intense heat within the earth - was the foundation of a major Minnesota industry. The first granite quarry in Central Minnesota was opened in 1863 by two Scotsmen. In the 130 years to follow, Central Minnesota granite became an international commodity gracing buildings as far away as Singapore.
