Former stone quarries located in southeastern Woburn, on the Woburn-Winchester line. Some sources call the locality "Winchester Highlands." Quarrying began in 1913. Rock is granodiorite, diorite, and granite; also pegmatite and aplite veins. The workings were 1/3 mile long and 165 feet deep (or high at the face). Industrial buildings are now present on much of the former quarry site.
