(c. 1816 - 1900's)This is the site of the Eastburn-Jeanes farms and mining industry. Marble from the Cockeysville Formation, found in three quarries in the area, was heated in kilns to produce quick lime for fertilizer and mortar. The lime was transported over Limestone Road to nearby Pennsylvania, Maryland and southern Delaware. The remaining historic structures include nearby kilns, residences, shops, springhouses, and the ruin of the stone Eastburn barn.
