Shipping the Stone

Rough cut granite was shipped uncovered, since there was no detail work to protect. Sullivan Granite Company built a spur line into the quarry from the main railroad line. The portion of the railway that crossed Route 91 was temporarily put in place when there was stone to transport to the mainline and then it was removed.
