Capitol Auto Parts is situated atop property that used to be a slate quarry. In the 1800's, immigrants would come to this part of the country from Europe to work in the (then booming) slate quarries. Slate was the primary source for roofing and chalk boards. With new innovations over the years, the demand for slate has decreased. Most all quarries are now closed. In the late 70's the property was purchased. Improvements were made to the old idle slate quarry to transform it into a modern recycling facility.
