Redstone is a type of sandstone that is rich in iron oxide and was used extensively in architecture in the northeastern United States during the 19th century 1. It was a popular building material for brownstone residential properties and public buildings, such as Boston’s historic Trinity Church 1. Redstone was also used for the construction of the pillars around Springfield Armory, which were quarried from more than 100 East Longmeadow quarries 2.
