Stone Quarry

The Simeone Quarry is located just behind the Wrentham Outlets in Wrentham, Massachusetts. The equipment is so complex in a quarry like this with all of the conveyors, machines, ladders and sheds. Crushed Stone Aggregates and Sand/Gravel are generated from a variety of natural deposits – limestone, granite, trap rock, and other durable mineral resources.  Production of these products requires blasting and excavating the broken stone from quarries followed by progressive stages of crushing, screening, washing and blending. The aggregate products range in size from Rip-Rap, where each stone may weigh several tons, to manufactured sand for use in concrete and asphalt products. Faber-Castell Pitt Art pens with Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Sketchbook.
