ON THE COVER
The Indiana Limestone Belt is rich in natural material that has been used for many historic projects across the country, and continues to be a source of limestone for new projects, as well as restoration work. The Empire Quarry in Bloomington, IN, which is owned by Indiana Limestone Co., has been deemed an historic site, as it supplied the limestone used for the Empire State Building in New York City. To learn more about Indiana limestone and the companies that quarry and fabricate it, turn to the Indiana limestone section beginning on p. 28, and specifically the feature "Touring 'The Stone Bel'" that starts on p. 38.
