As a follow up to last nights post, this structure is affectionately known as “the crusher”. It still stands on Monocacy Hill and can be located on the Railbed Trail. The truth is, this was not the crusher. It was the crusher bin. The actual rock crusher would have been placed up the hill a bit on the massive concrete foundations that still stand there. Rock would have been crushed and a conveyor system would have transported rock to this bin. Rail cars would have then been pulled underneath this and rock would have been loaded for transport. There is no evidence that a crusher was ever used here or even that railroad tracks had ever been installed. It was abandoned around 1929 before ever being put into service and a forever reminder as to how close we came to losing Monocacy Hill.

This a Railroad bridge that put in place on the line that would have connected the main line to the quarry. Its in the field between the river and 422. I was told also that the track was never laid.

I grew up on Monacacy Hill as kids we loved it there we also found the cave again👍

Was just on the hill and saw it👍

Not too long after it burned down. I’ll try to get a comparison photo...but wow what a difference since the 70’s. ... See MoreSee Less

Tom Brown. Still running the place 40+ years later😳

42 years later and they’re still running the same trucks that the DOT cop probably loves.

Still looks pretty much the same. 😁

My mother , Janice Kline, (God rest her soul) made dish towels out of their feed bags. I still use mine after 40 some years.

It still looks like this today.

Still looking the same

No judging tonight. Our judges prefer to get out and look at the amazing displays and it will probably still be rainy out. They will be out Tuesday and Wednesday evening for sure. ... See MoreSee Less

I love how everyone jumped in to participate in this! The Fam and I are excited to pack up in the car with hot cocoa, spooky music and drive around and see everyone’s amazing homes!!!!!

We are still new to Amity Twp, in a second story apartment so we didn't participate, but so excited to go out Halloween night and see the amazing houses all decorated! 🎃🕸👻💀🖤💜💚🧡

Its been so fun seeing everyone's decorations! Is there going to be a Christmas light contest to? 😀

It's a shame the beautiful fence and gate are gone. Wonderful craftsmanship!
