Lilly Stone tells the story of a woman who
changed the landscape of business and culture in the rural countryside near the Nation's Capital. Born during the
Civil War, she died during the Cold War. At the stage of life when most people retire, Lilly was not only doing
men's work but running an industry of men's work. She founded Stoneyhurst quarries and, while operating the quarry,
she inspired the first flag for the county and founded the Montgomery County Historical Society. Letters to
Lilly from her son detail World War I. Remarkably, World War II brings German POWs to work at her quarry. With
accomplishments in business and a passion for preserving history, Lilly Stone made history herself.
