Facilities Services has operated a university owned quarry since 1869. The ashlar patterned stone facades (Hokie Stone) used on campus buildings are constructed of native limestone quarried and surfaced by Facilities Services personnel. Virginia Tech's local quarry produces 25 to 50 tons of stone each week to support the supply for new buildings on campus.
