Rhyolite is one of the most important lithic (stone) resources used by prehistoric populations in the Frederick County area and beyond for manufacturing tools. Ongoing research has revealed that groups throughout history traveled to a large county resource where the material was quarried and then transported along stream drainages as it was worked along the way.

A search for the lost Monocacy Log Church has been an ongoing project for over 20 years. The Monocacy Archeological Society is looking for volunteers to help us with research on this interesting project.
