Terms of protection
In 1991 in an effort to ensure the land would always be available to those that had come to enjoy its offerings Dorothy incorporated Stone Quarry Hill Art Park as a non-profit art park. A conservation easement protects the 104 acres of land from future development and maintains the aesthetics of Stone Quarry Hill's history, first as a quarry and then in the late 1800s as a working farm.
National Register of Historic Places (2014)
The Dorothy Riester House and Studio is significant under Criterion C as a highly intact example of a mid-twentieth century modern house and artist studio.
In 2011, its 20th anniversary year, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park was recognized as #2 in National Geographic’s “Top Ten Sculpture Parks and Trails” in Secret Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World’s Best Hidden Travel Gems.

Stone Quarry Art Park is open every day from dawn to dusk.
