Quincy Quarries Geology & History Walk

Taken for Granite
Saturday, Nov 5, 2:00 – 3:30 PM

Join the Friends of the Blue Hills, a registered geologist, and a founder of the Quincy Quarry Worker’s museum, for this co-sponsored geology and quarry history walk.  We’ll explore the bedrock and glacial geology, and the major quarrying activities by many companies during many decades, to understand why the Quincy granite was so valuable and for such a long time.

Sturdy footwear is required and the ability to climb rugged, narrow trails. 1.5 hours. The rain date and time is the next day. 

Space is limited to 20 attendees, ages 12 and older.

Pre-registration is required.  Contact: walk@friendsofthebluehills.org
