The McGilvray Quarry (2006 Photographic Tour)

The following photographs are of the inactive McGilvray Quarry, and they were taken in the summer of 2006. At that time, the quarry was owned by Charles (Chip) Coffyn. I had spoken with Chip a couple of times on the phone about his quarries, and he had agreed to write the captions for these photographs. Unfortunately, he unexpectedly died in 2007 before this photo section was completed.

The McGilvray quarry is located about one-quarter mile from the Brownstone/Knowles Quarry on the opposite side of the road. You can use Google Maps to view both the McGilvray and the Brownstone/Knowles quarries using the “Satellite” view, which allows you to clearly see both quarries from above.
