Sandstone Outcropping

Sandstone is common in Treutlen County, and there are many forms of it all over the world. It is used as building material.  Ordinary farm houses in our area sat on blocks of sandstone.  It can easily be carved, such as in the walls of Troup's Tomb. The most prominent outcropping is Berryhill Bluff on the Oconee River.

The outcropping in the photos is over head high and is just off GA 46 near the airport. The Ernie Gillis house is on the hill.
