Notes
Survey number HAER WV-49
Significance: The Standard Lime & Stone Quarry is a surviving example of an early 20th-century dolomite quarrying and processing site in the limestone-rich eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. The extraction and heat processing of dolomite and limestone for manufacturing lime, cement, rock wool insulation, furnace lime, and lime flux was one of the most important industries in Jefferson County and the Panhandle region. Four principal stone processing operations -- the production of furnace lime, rock wool, lime flux, and lime hydrate -- were carried out at the Standard Lime & Stone Quarry plant area between 1901 and 1974. The products were purchased by Mid-Atlantic regional steel mills and local businesses. Due to changing technologies in the manufacturing of limestone-derived products, relatively few of these early industrial landscapes survive today with any integrity in Jefferson County.
