Dover Township - The New Oxford formation sandstone was quarried on Conewago Mountain for building stone.  Not only were large blocks removed for blocks for buildings, but some were also hand-shaped for the production of pillars.  The Dauphin County Courthouse has pillars on the front of building made from this area.  This specimen still remains along Rohrer's Church Road and measures six feet long and thirty inches in diameter.
