About the Area
Hall Quarry, located about halfway between Somesville and Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island, was once home to a thriving granite quarrying industry that provided stone to build such important structures as the National Mint in Philadelphia, the Brooklyn Anchorage, and the Manhattan Bridge in New York. Hall Quarry supported as many as five quarrying operations from 1870 to 1965. Hall Quarry is a quiet and peaceful village that sits nestled in the hills on Somes Sound, the only natural fjord on the east coast, and is a popular sailing and pleasure boating destination offering protected, deep anchorages and spectacular views all year long.
