Limestone and some Flint that I hauled 125 miles from my Stepfathers farm to build the chimney in my cabin/home. It is 35 feet tall, five feet wide and four feet thick which translates into many visits and miles of driving. I could haul 3000 lbs per load and began building during very hot weather in early summer and finished in very cold weather. Had a fire in the stove the day after it was finished.

This is one of two stones that was located in my North West pasture and we had it carried with a track hoe and placed in my yard. The grass is native Eastern Gama Grass that is 7 feet tall to give some scale to it's size. Apparently left by the ice age as rocks this size are not common where I live. The operator estimated it has to weigh around 8 tons, he carried it over half a mile driving sideways, backward and forward to keep from over turning his machine.

That was quite the undertaking Steve, to build that beautiful fireplace. Getting the stone that is in the family makes it extra special. Well done in many respects.:-)

That really large stone looks great with the native grass. You have done some great work to preserve the native habitat. I would have had a great problem though, loading that particular stone into my rock wagon back in the day.:-D
