Martin Marietta’s Texas Quarry is an active mine located in Cockeysville, Maryland and is one of the most spectacular hidden gemstones in Baltimore Co.

On this tour, we will learn about important safety practices involved in their day-to-day business.  We’ll travel down to the base of the pit to see where the raw material comes from, and then back up to the sales yard to see processes that produce the final material.

Currently spanning over one mile North to South and over half a mile East to West, the first written records of mining at this location were in 1802 by a group of Irish immigrants. Materials from this quarry were used to construct the George Washington Monument in Baltimore and other significant landmarks.

Learning Objectives Summary:

  1. Review important safety requirement and practices involved in the day-to-day business operation.
  2. Learn about raw material extraction.
  3. Understand processes that produce the final material for the sale yard.
  4. Discuss the historical significance.

Martin Marietta is an American-based company and a leading supplier of building materials. They supply the resources necessary for building the solid foundations on which our communities thrive.
