I just moved to Granite, Md in baltimore county.

It is an old quarry town from back in the 1700's. The original smithsonian institute was built from the granite in these quarries.

The old quarries are now deserted and ghosttowns, but the roads to them are long gone as they have been closed since the 1920's.

there are still some very cool structures, water filled quarries that are 100 feet deep, and many other interesting historic locations that are inaccessable by road.

I was wondering if anyone knew more info about this area, and if so, how to get to some of these sites?
