Question...all my life I've seen those beautiful buildings UP north of the impressive red stone like the shown fire station/museum. What can you pasty experts tell me about this stone? It just says UP as soon as I see something built of it.

By Dr. Nat (Drnat) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 10:01 am:

That red stone is known as the Jacobsville Sandstone. It was quarried locally at Jacobsville and sent throughout the United States and I think even to the UK for use as building stone. The quarry was opened in 1883 and operated for about 30 years. You can take a drive to Jacobsville and see remnants of the quarrying, although much of it is overgrown with trees now.

The Jacobsville Sandstone is ~1.1 billion years old. It was deposited in a basin adjacent to the Midcontinent Rift.

I have to get back to class now. I can tell you more about the rock later!

One of the most well known buildings to use Jacobsville Sandstone was the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, or perhaps the original Waldorf (built in 1893) in New York City.

RCW How long ago was that?

By RCW (Rcw) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 06:36 pm:

Rowdy, Well I would estimate in the 1880s,maybe farther back even.He passed away when I was only around 5 years old.
