Greenbriar limestone formation east of Barrelville

The photo below shows a formation of Greenbriar limestone that was located 1.25 miles east of Barrelville, Maryland. Mike McKenzie reorts that this photo was taken near the stone wall on the old Legislative Road; the quarry was on the north side of the road. This is where M. Porter presently (2009) lives. The remnant of that road that survives in this area is presently known as the Portertown road.

The image is from volume eight of the 1909 Maryland Geological Survey. The pages of that book that relate to the formation are included below the photo.
