Our History

Kinsella Quarries has been intertwined with the growth and development of Fayetteville and its neighboring communities. What began as a vital coal supplier evolved into a cornerstone of the region's growth. From humble beginnings in the era of hand-picked stone and pickaxes to the modern, efficient quarry operations of today, the Kinsella name has stood for quality, reliability, and a deep commitment to the local community.

THE ORIGIN

J.P. Kinsella Coal

Long before the days of air freight, heavy trucks, and sophisticated advancements in residential and commercial heating, if you wanted a ready source of power, you likely turned to one substance - coal. If you lived in Fayetteville, New York, and its surrounding areas, you just as likely turned to one place - J.P. Kinsella Coal.

During a time when railways echoed with the steady rumble of coal-laden cars, deliveries made their way from Pennsylvania's hills to the Kinsella Coal silos on Route 5. From there, the coal was distributed to homes throughout eastern Onondaga County and to local businesses.

THE EARLY YEARS

John and Tom Kinsella

In 1939, T.H. Kinsella first extended the sale of hand-picked stone and topsoil to go along with the coal that his father, J.P. Kinsella, ushered into town before him.

With little more than a pickaxe and a shovel, a local supply of limestone was born as T.H. Kinsella and his two young sons, Tommy and John Kinsella, mined the earth to provide the raw material needed for the stone walls and foundations of the day. 

As Fayetteville and its surrounding areas continued to grow, the demand for a more efficient production method became evident. In 1960, Tommy and John Kinsella introduced the quarry's first crusher and screens, marking a significant step towards automation. This innovation led to an immediate increase in crushed stone output and variety, providing a valuable resource for the local building industry.

PRESENT DAY

In 1967, T.H. Kinsella was incorporated, marking a significant milestone in the company's history. Since then, T.H. Kinsella has emerged as the primary source of crushed stone for the Central New York area. The company remains dedicated to serving local municipalities, private contractors, and the needs of individual homeowners.

Even after all these years, T.H. Kinsella remains a local, family-owned business, steadfast in its commitment to supporting the local economy by providing essential, cost-efficient raw building materials.
