Quarry-Lover Pete Farley

Mar 30, 2012

He's into "soft rock" --but not the musical kind.  Pete Farley has been fascinated with the Alberene Soapstone Quarry his entire life and is now searching for its history.  He also recalls some of Nelson County's castle-like abandoned quarry buildings and mills

--some built with soapstone walls two feet thick.  The abandoned historic buildings around one of WMRA-land's tinier towns also intrigues him --that there had to be a thousand or more additional people there who later vanished.  Pete fills us in on some history and on a newly-awakened area quarry.
