Aquia Creek Sandstone Quarry (United States)


The sandstone quarries at Aquia Creek, just up from Aquia Landing at Brent Point, were the source of the building stone used in the construction of many well-known buildings, such as the Capitol and the White House, as well as buildings at Woodstock, George Brent’s plantation on Aquia Creek, and the Brent tombstones at the Aquia cemetery.
