Lower Paleozoic rocks of an eastern miogeosynclinal assemblage have been mapped and studied in detail in the Applebush Hill area. Their stratigraphic, paleontological, and structural aspects have been correlated to the investigations of previous workers in adjacent areas. Minor treatment has been given to the volcanic rocks. The eastern assemblage is composed predominantly of clastic limestones ranging in age from Upper Cambrian to Niagaran. The volcanic rocks are probably of Early Tertiary age. Major folding is limited to Applebush Hill in the southern portion of the area. Normal faulting of considerable displacement persists throughout the area and forms two distinctive patterns.
