Erie County rests on a layer of limestone, only inches below the topsoil in some places, formed by prehistoric glaciers. Because of its abundance, many buildings in the county are constructed of stone quarried locally, including the Erie County Services Center, housing the county commissioners’ offices and other government agencies. Two quarries in the county cover approximately 2,000 acres and produce 7- to 8-million tons of aggregate annually. | Erie
