  • Gordon County, Georgia - the Hamrick Black Marble Quarry (AKA “Liberty Church Quarry”) (Granite)

    According to the present owner, Greg Schulz, the quarry was also known as the “Liberty Church Quarry” and possibly the “Liberty Church Road Quarry.” The photographs presented below were donated by Greg Schulz, and they show various aspects of his quarry. He states that the quarry was mined in the 1950s by the Georgia Marble Company, but he has been unable to obtain any records on the quarry from the company. He states “The rock is calcareous mudstone...or black marble with white calcite veins.” The total size today is approximately 100 feet by 100 feet, but there is a lot of rubble filling the quarry so it is not possible at present to determine the depth. Local people have claimed that the quarry was about 200 feet deep. Deep down in the quarry there is black marble, but the higher stone is called “bluestone” by the local people. If you have any information on this quarry, you can contact Greg Schulz directly. Peggy B. Perazzo
