This stone, named Dunnville Sandstone, was quarried in a location first discovered in 1882 by surveyors for the railroad. Stone such as this was used for constructing our shelter house, the Mabel Tainter Memorial building in Menomonie, the St. Thomas Church in New York City, and in many other buildings.

Ulmer, Salahan, Lang, and H. Walters are former active stone quarries located across and up the river from this point.
The marker is located at Caddie Woodlawn Memorial Park off Highway 25, between 440th Street and 130th Avenue, Downsville, Wisconsin 54835.
