Lyons Turning Mill, Quincy MA

The Lyons Turning Mill was founded in 1894, where huge sections of granite were turned on lathe-like machines and then polished to make large columns. The remnants of the Turning Mill is located near the new Granite Links Golf Course in the heart of what used to be Quincy's quarries. This sign has recently been posted on the fence surrounding the site. It has original pictures of the Turning Mill circa late 1800s to early 1900s along with a descriptions.

 

This is also the proposed location for a future Quincy Quarry and Granite Workers Museum to be established www.quincyquarrymuseum.org/index.html
