In the early 1800s, Captain Peter Burns opened a granite quarry on his farm, and he is known as the father of the industry. Burns was succeeded by his sons, John M. and Luther M. Burns.

Burns Hill is a summit with abandoned granite quarries and granite ledges, some with pegmatite dikes. Coordinates are for the hill.
