The following list of California quarries is not a complete
list of all of the historical quarries in the state, only the ones I have
been able to locate. Also, please see the two complete listings of granite
and marble/limestone quarries in the entries entitled, Compiled Lists of Quarries.
If you know of more historical quarries in California, please contact me.
If you have photographs of quarries, I invite you to send them to us for inclusion
on this page.
