Inscription. The limestone quarry site was operated continuously by members of the Mulligan family, who either owned or leased the property for 115 years.

James Mulligan and his brothers, Francis, Patrick and Terrance, emigrated from County Caven, Ireland and settled in Clinton. James' brothers bought the quarry in 1848; James helped in its operation.

In 1855, The Mulligans sold the quarry to James P. Hoffman, who sold it to George Gulick. However, James continued to lease and operate the site until his death in 1862. His son, Michael C., carried on the quarry operation, buying the property from Gulick in 1866 and renaming it "M.C. Mulligan & Son." The name remained for 95 years, until Michael's son, James, who took over the quarry in 1916, ceased its operations in 1961.
