Enormous concrete buildings stand desolate and quietly in a remote part of the Upper Peninsula. They were part of the Fiborn Quarry built in the early 1900s. The Fiborn Limestone Co. at its peak had two locomotives and a small town of 75 people that worked for the quarry. It operated until the 1930s when the depression crippled the company’s ability to operate. The ruins of some of the buildings are now part of the Karst Preserve which lies between St. Ignace and Newberry about 10 miles west of Trout Lake. It’s about a half mile hike to the buildings but if you are in the area it’s worth the trip.
