Cumberland Limestone was founded in 2005 when Cris Sidwell, a third generation limestone miner purchased King Limestone. Cumberland Limestone is nestled in the rolling hills of Southeastern Ohio on the borders of Muskingum and Guernsey counties. Home to the same area where, the Big Muskie, the largest earth-moving machine ever built once crawled, mining the underlying coal.
Prior to the Reclamation Act of 1977, coal companies were not required to reclaim the land that they mined. Cumberland Limestone takes great pride in reclaiming abandoned mines while extracting limestone. Some of the neighboring reclaimed property is now home to the Wilds, one of the world’s largest research and conservation center for rare and endangered species.
