Opus 40 – The Quarryman’s museum

[In 1972] “Fite builds a garage to house his trucks, including his trusty Jeep and an old fire engine that he bought from Bard College in the early 1950s. The fire engine’s primary use has been to serve as a pumping mechanism to clean out pools in and around the quarry, but it is also quite a popular fixture of the Labor Day parades and other events in High Woods (even helping put out a few fires).

While constructing the garage, he decides to add a second story that will serve as a museum to house his collection of quarrymen’s tools and artifacts, as a way to honor the men who toiled in the quarries before him. This becomes the Quarryman’s Museum. It’s now also a gift shop.” (Opus 40 Website)
