Homes in Mayfield Ranch, a neighborhood north of Austin, share a fence line with a quarry in Georgetown on Tuesday, July 30, 2019. The quarry, owned by Edwin Brazelton Snead, has been in the area since 1958. Kent Snead, grandson to Edwin and third generation to work at the quarry, noticed homes beginning to approach the the fence line in 2011. “The idea was to quarry (the area) before the houses got in so we didn’t create a disturbance,” Kent said. “We established a relationship with the developer to let buyers know there was a quarry.” While the company continues to quarry away from the homes, the cliff is still an active quarry wall and has rock that is still available to be mined. “The quarry business is not a typical neighbor and so it’s easy to be vilified,” Kent said.
