New Database of Building Stones

The National Park Service has launched a building stone database. “The website, named the National Building Stone Database, is part of an ongoing effort to document important quarries and the stone they produce…. The database, which currently contains over a hundred stones, is a work in progress. Researchers from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, where physical samples are housed, will continue to document and add new stones to the database into the future.”
