The Kentland Dome is an enigmatic, thought-provoking, structurally complex anomaly, subsequently covered by glacial drift, in an area surrounded by normal, undisturbed, flay-lying Paleozoic strata. Rocks in thecore of the Kentland structure havebeen uplifted more than 2,000 ft (610 m), folded into a structural dome, and intricately disrupted by faulting. A significant portion of the Ordovician central core is revealed in the spectacular Kentland Quarry. One must see the quarry and its superb rock exposures that challenge the imagination to grasp the magnitude of the anomaly and complexities of its structural pattern.
