The old rock crushing plant

Posted Monday, March 4, 2013, at 12:00 AM

The old rock crushing plant on South Sprigg Street that stood for nearly 75 years is seen April 27, 1977.

The plant was built in the early 1900s by the Edward L. Hely Stone Co. and was last operated by Southeast Missouri Stone Co., which stopped using the crusher in February 1976. The building was torn down to make room for the widening and reconstruction of Sprigg. (Fred Lynch photo)

  • For Fred Lynch, I am trying to find the blog about a Log Cabin at 818 N. Fountain St.

    Anyway I am trying to save this property from demolition, and move the Cabin somewhere in Cape.
