A pretty cool vine found growing into a broken window in a building at the Sandstone Quarries on Quarry Road in Amherst Township, Ohio. This place in very special to me as I grew up on Quarry Road about a mile north of these quarries. These quarries put Amherst on the map making it "The Sandstone Center of the World."

 

What do the Yale University Library, the University of Michigan campus chapel and the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto have in common? The buildings were all built with

Amherst sandstone.

 

Have a few minutes...view this awesome YouTube video on the history of the sandstone quarries.
