Buena Vista Freestone Company Store

Coming Soon!
The story of the Buena Vista Freestone Company and John M. Mueller, its sole proprietor.

Learn about Mueller's operation, which included quarries up nearby Vastine Hollow, a saw mill and stone office building on the banks of the Ohio, and sales offices in Cincinnati and New York City. "The Stone House in Buena Vista" is one of the many highlights of the Scenic Scioto Heritage Trail and this and other stories associated with the history of the Shawnee Wilderness Area are currently under development and will soon appear here in Scioto Historical.
