Lime, Baker County, Oregon

Lime:  Located on I-84, 37 miles east from Baker city, this huge idle plant has been vacant since 1980. Stone was taken from the quarry in the late 1880�s with several of Baker City�s major buildings being constructed from that stone. The plant was expanded in 1916 and from 1923 to 1980 over 61/2 million tons were taken from the mountain area. In the 1950�s, there were over 145 employees at this major operation. Later a few miles west a new plant was constructed and now produces lime and cement, it is a large operation.
