Adz Quarries Dedicated as U.S. Landmark
Honolulu Star Bulletin
August 27, 1969

The highest national historic landmark in the State — the Adz quarries at the 12,400 foot level of Mauna Kea — was dedicated yesterday. Only 16 persons made it by four-wheel drive vehicle to the site...where a bronze plaque was set in a big rock. And only three hiked the quarter-mile over a...foot trail from the road to the quarries...

William Y. Thompson, deputy director of the State Department of Land and Natural Resources, accepted the plaque in the name of Gov. John A. Burns.

A prayer was offered by the Rev. Kaipo Kuamoo of Hilo. After the ceremony, Tobin, Thompson and Kubota hiked over to inspect some of the quarries.
