Marble from this quarry, located nearby, was used to build the Washington Monument in Baltimore. Designed by architect Robert Mills and erected between 1815 and 1829, this was the first public monument erected to George Washington. The construction contract specified "the whole of the column is to be of the whitest and the best quality marble from Scott's Quarry." The quarry was operated from about 1810 to about 1855.
