Stone Quarry

        In the early years the company operated their own quarry to obtain stone for bridge construction. The quarry was located on the Toledo & Ohio Central (Eastern Division) near Fulton, Ohio in Morrow County. These three photos from the F-R-C Collection were taken April 26, 1892.

There is a railroad track along the top edge of the quarry. A gondola can be seen along side the building on the left.
