Gordon locates the quarry at 0.25 miles west of Schuylkill River and 0.75 miles south of Woodland Station, P&R Railroad. Woodland (Wood Land) station is not longer existent, but served the Wood Estate, located in the river bend tract in the vicinity of Aloha Lane and Spring Mill Road (Historic Resource Impact Study,1862 Aloha Lane, Lower Merion Township, August 4, 2010, Wise Preservation Planning LLC). The station was located close to where Spring Mill Road would cross the tracks, if extended further (see p. 7). This then places the quarry more/less in the current (2017) Lower Merion Township Kenealy Nature Park, close to Lafayette Road.
