EAGLE POINT LIME WORKS
The fact that it was sold in Michigan, where it was used in the iron factories, was said to prove the superiority of the Dubuque product. In addition to lime, the Eagle Point Limeworks carried a full line of fire brick, building brick, plastering hair, cement, and stucco.
The business also produced crush rock from the stone unsuitable for lime making. The use of an Austin gyrator crusher led to a daily production of 400 yards of crushed rock available in three sizes. A yard of crushed rock sold for sixty cents. (1)The rock quarry, later the property of Dubuque Stone Products, eventually became Eagle Point Fun Land.
In 1899 the company was listed as a brick manufacturer.
The 1899-1900 through 1918 Dubuque City Directory listed Lime near Lincoln Avenue as the address.
The 1922 Dubuque Telephone Directory listed 2900 Rhomberg Avenue.
