A Diamond in the Rough, just waiting to be POLISHED!  McBride Stone Company, Inc. is one of Independence and Izard Counties' longest-running rock/stone quarries.  It is my honor to bring to you this great opportunity to own a piece of history and continue this legacy!  With nearly every building in Arkansas and surrounding states who have used any type of stone, there is a good chance it has come from one of the McBride Quarries.  McBride Stone was started in the 1950s by Oran McBride and has been run by the McBride family ever since.  McBride Stone has 2 locations: its sandstone quarry and black marble quarry, and the saw shop is located north of Batesville near Bethesda, looking over the White River, consisting of 410 +/- Acres with the railroad cutting through the upper northwest corner for the great possibility to have shipping access to the railroad!  The blue marble quarry and saw shop is located near the community of Wideman in Izard County, with 340 +/- acres with Quarry Road Access just off Wideman Road.  The sandstone and both marble quarries are great investments, for all 3 quarries have barely been touched!  When you buy this, you will get both the Independence and Izard County farms consisting of about 750 +/- Acres total, some overlooking the White River, good access, railroad going through the corner of Independence Co. piece, and all equipment!  There are revenue-generating opportunities just waiting for you for many more generations to come!  All the equipment it takes to run this operation is being conveyed, with some needing updating.  This family has been operating with a limited budget and still making a profit, but with some new equipment and fresh management, the sky is the limit!  This family is tired and ready to retire!  They are ready to hand over the family legacy and let someone else run with it!  Sellers will not be handing over their books for this, they will be selling it as is.  They will sell the McBride Stone Company, Inc. name with it and sign a non-compete.  They want to see someone take this and run with it, so they are also willing to help out a new buyer with everyday operations for a little while if needed.  If this is something you want to explore, please do NOT contact the sellers, only contact their agent, Pamela Welch, 870-897-0700 .  This will be sold AS IS.
