Manheim Township in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The quarry had commercial success as a source of limestone to produce lime, and later crushed gravel. When springs filled the pit and stone production ceased, the quarry became a source of potable water for the City of Lancaster. In 2017 the quarry found a new purpose as a "wet detention basin" to protect the property and neighboring properties from rainwater runoff.
