Title: South Dock
Author: Niebergall, Ernst
Description: Stone docks on Kelleys Island were constructed to support narrow-gauge rail tracks so that Shay steam locomotives could pull flat cars of quarried stone to the bins at the end of the structure. Stone was funneled through chutes into waiting barges or freighters. In the early days, stone was loaded onto vessels by horse-drawn wagons from an elevated platform, through aprons or chutes lying on either side.
