People

The modern quarry wall that inspires thousands of visitors a year is the culmination of a century of work by hundreds of dedicated people in many disciplines. The list includes paleontologists, Park Rangers, construction workers, designers, architects, mountain men and so many more.

We update this section to include historical biographies as they become available. Do you know someone who worked at Carnegie Quarry that we missed? Do you have photos or stories of people working at Carnegie Quarry that you would like to see here? Email us at carnegiequarry@gmail.com, and we will add them to the website as time allows.
