Limestone at our 65-acre quarry was first harvested by R.J. and Lavonne Spillane in 1993, under the name Limestone Unlimited Co. Twenty years later the quarry, located in Apple River, Illinois, changed ownership as R.J.’s granddaughter, Jessica and her husband, Winston Storey, took over and re-branded the site as Stagecoach Trails Limestone.
Winston and Jessica, as owner-operators, have a firm vision for the company. “Both Winston and I come from entrepreneurial families with local northwest Illinois roots,” said Jessica, “My parents, Mick and Patty Arand, currently own six area businesses and Winston’s family have owned several businesses in Warren for years.”
“Our intent is to continue that legacy and encourage our kids to form the same strong work ethic. We value good working relationships with our clients and customer satisfaction is our top priority,” Winston explained. “We take pride in our ability to deliver loads of rock on time and it’s not unusual for a two-day turnaround on orders.”.
Today Stagecoach Trails Limestone is a leading producer of limestone rock used for residential and commercial landscaping, architectural purposes, municipal and county roads, shoreline and slope restoration.
Our goal is to supply native stone to beautify homes, businesses, parks, lake resorts and more by offering a sustainable contribution to environmental conservation. Attributes of natural stone include an enduring life-cycle, durability, ease of care and maintenance. The long-term payback for utilizing a green product such as limestone far outweighs the price.
