River Quarry Series

Russel Fouts's avatar Russel Fouts

Growing up in Grand Rapids, I was always fascinated by the stories of how the city is both on the river and of the river. How the river not only gave it’s name to the city, provided transport, power, water and food but also built the city, from rock and gravel dredged up from it’s bed or carved out of the ‘Quarry Hole’ beneath the 6th St dam. The River Quarry Series speaks of the river, stone, clay and water that was taken from the river to build the city.
