Boonesboro Quarry Tour

The Allen Company, Inc was formed in 1939 and has worked in Central Kentucky for over 75 years.  We are a family business that is locally owned and operated, and provides local jobs for over 400 Kentucky families. The Boonesboro Quarry, located on the Kentucky River just south of Lexington began in the early 1900’s as an open pit mine, but underground operations didn’t start until 1950.


The quarry is bounded to the south by the Kentucky River fault zone and to the north, east, and west by the Kentucky River.  The Kentucky River fault zone is part of an east-west trending fault system which extends more than 800 miles from Virginia to north-central Missouri. The fault at Boonesboro is a high angle fault with approximately 450ft of displacement.   The Boonesboro Quarry is on the upthrown side of the fault which exposed the limestone at the surface.


The Allen Company is currently mining a third level of the Camp Nelson Limestone, a high-carbonate formation, at a working depth of almost 300ft below the original entrance elevation.
