Four small old, abandoned quarries that worked the same pegmatite along the SE side of the gas pipeline just SW of Dayton Road. The quarry referenced by Foye (1922) is not this quarry but the Howe #1 Quarry http://www.mindat.org/loc-11896.html (worked earlier by Joshua and William Huspband, leading to locality confusion and overlapping mineral lists).
