Ahijah, Jack and Colin took a trip to an ex-quarry in Quincy, Massachusetts. Granite mining began here in 1825 and provided building rocks for monuments such as the Bunker Hill Monument and The Titanic Monument. Quincy began to build a reputation as “The Granite City” until 1963 when mining came to a halt leaving jagged stone walls to surround a field of grass. It’s a great place to check out cool graffiti and climb some rocks.
