The mill operated early in the century until it became uneconomical, and was shut. The quarry, four miles distant, was reopened around the turn of the 21st century and currently trucks huge blocks to be finished offsite. Local sculptors use the scrap marble that once littered the ground for their projects. In the 1960's huge blocks of marble could be seen scattered in the Crystal River, victims of unreliable transport decades earlier. Most have since been retrieved.
