World's Largest Limestone Quarry

The gigantic quarry looked more like a destroyed city with dirty little trucks buzzing about!

World's Largest Limestone Quarry

This quarry is huge! There are several points around the area to view the quarry as well as see the freighter ships that transport the limestone throughout the Great Lakes. Since limestone naturally cleans water, the Lake Huron water all around Rogers City is beautiful. Try the cream pie from Kortman's - the diner is a dump, but the pie is incredible!
