Morrison Red Sandstone Quarry



George Morrison's red sandstone quarry is the likely source of building stone for the Cliff House and Morrison Schoolhouse, as well as the "Swiss Cottage" (no longer extant). The scar of the quarry is located on the west face of the Dakota Hogback (Dinosaur Ridge) just north of the town of Morrison and is visible in historic photos.
