The Final Journey

Over time, horse drawn wagons were replaced with a fleet of trucks to transport the finished stones to Peekskill where they were either trucked into New York City or placed in railroad cars for transport to other locations.

The finished stones were loaded on to trucks using overhead electrically driven travelling cranes with a capacity of 10 to 20 tons and boom derricks with an average capacity of 25 tons each.
