Emma’s Masonary

Jess is hard at work learning about the rocks that were used to construct our beautiful campus, and the historical events surrounding the building events. We visited Adam Ross Cut Stone, the business that cut the original stones for our buildings, and still sources pieces for renovation work.

It was an amazing trip, in which we learned where the rocks came from, how they were processed, how they were assembled, and how our buildings are maintained today. It was a terrific Signature field trip!
