Rock of Ages

Elephant Rocks in Iron County, Mo.

St. Louis City Hall

The stuff that St. Louis City Hall is made of is granite, pre-Cambrian granite to be exact, some of the oldest stuff on the planet. This particular stone came from a quarry in Iron County, Mo. at the turn of the last century. Elephant Rocks, the amazing rock formations that are near the now-defunct quarry have fortunately been preserved as a state park.
