AURORA – The St. George Historical Society invites you to avail yourself of Leonard Greenhaigh’s kind offer to welcome visitors to the former Hocking Granite quarry on the mainland at Clark’s Island at 6pm on Thursday, August 26. Mr. Greenhaigh has owned the quarry property for several years and has transformed the area into a wildlife sanctuary of unbelievable beauty.

Arnold Hocking and his late brother Darold operated the Hocking Granite Company until the early 1960’s. Arnold is the only person who understands the operation of the granite industry in St. George from his own experience. He will explain how the granite was quarried, cut, sold and transported for a variety of uses. At September’s Historical Society meeting Arnold will show slides taken while the quarry was in operation.

After the Society’s visit to Clark’s Island last year, many people expressed disappointment that they were unable to attend; others wanted to go again and spend more time at the quarry, so we anticipate an enthusiastic response to his invitation. It would be best if we meet by 6 P. M. at the St. George Grange at Wiley’s Corner Road to car pool, as parking at Clark’s Island is limited. For information: James Skoglund,   207-372-8893
