We believe this is the old quarry at the end of Posey St., commonly known years ago as Hobo Canyon.

In fact, Washington County Historian Jeremy Elliott said he actually caught a hobo sleeping in a shack next to the train tracks back there when he was a kid.

Elliott said the area is now owned by CSX Railroad. f38804a1-97c5-4b6c-b105-fad84e16ecac

It is speculated some of the Washington County Courthouse’s stones were cut from this quarry in the 1880’s.
