Big Canyon Dolese Quarry in Oklahoma
"WARNING: DO NOT TRESPASS! RISK TO LIFE! Read below. The Big Canyon / Dougherty / Crusher Dolese Quarry was the first in Oklahoma and was created to supply rock for the railraid expanding across the country. It has been abandoned for a long time now and is a beautiful place. It has great scenery and awesome old, rusty machinery. The railroad runs along side it on the West. There is an old cemetery near the entrance dating a couple of hundred years old. There is supposed to be a small cemetery within the quarry itself where some immigrants rest but its location has been lost over time. There is some confusion on town names in this area. During the peak output of the quarry, many homes were set up inside and near the quarry. It seems as though this area was called Crusher, although somewhere nearby, or the same area, was called Big Canyon. WARNING: This quarry is gated and there are guard residents on site. Trespassers will be SHOT on site by the heavily armed guard-residents. There are also rattle snakes, dangerous equipment, rusty things, holes, cliffs, etc. It's not safe to go there, so don't. Period.
