Butterfly hunting



Rockford Brick & Tile Company

Rocky Ford, mascot of the Rockford Brick & Tile Company, will guide you along the trail through the quarry as you fossil hunt and explore the area that was once home to his Rocky FordCompany.

The Quarry area was mined for blue shale to be used in the production of ag drainage tiles and building bricks.

Two of the sixteen Beehive kilns remain on site. A restoration project is in the final stages as we work on preserving this historic site to help us tell Iowa's agricultural history.
