Rich in Aquia Creek Sandstone, a major building material in the 17th Century, Government Island was extensively used as a stone quarry, and contributed to numerous government buildings including the U.S. Capitol Building
. Usage of newer and tougher materials led to its subsequent decline as a quarry. Today, the facility is a lush natural preserve offering ample activities for nature and outdoor enthusiasts.
