Hayakawa Stone Quarry
This is probably the most accessible and one of the more well-known quarries. The remains of the quarry were mostly buried but it was uncovered when building the road. The condition of the site was so good they built a bridge over it so that it was not damaged. It is particularly notable for the number of large stones remaining. After surveying the site, most of it was reburied, but if you go back into the woods you may see more stones, but I'm not clear how to get there. This is one site I'd like to revisit and and check for myself if there is more to see back in the woods. Nearby there is also a large stone that is a part of someone's garden today but has many ya-ana holes carved into it. It was not likely moved here so this area was probably quarried for stone as well.
