Cape Ann Quarryland

Euphoria.

For over 200 years Cape Ann farmers had dug out, pushed and shoved rock out of the way to clear their fields for farming.

Euphoria.

Granite was something everyone could break, shape and sell. It lay on either side of the road, the fields cleared, small holes were dug out for larger chunks of granite to be removed. The quarry spectacle was viewed by summer visitors who sat atop their carriages.
