Fossil Coral Reef, also known locally as Bradbury Quarry, is a 100-acre (0.40 km2) abandoned limestone quarry in Le Roy, New York. It contains a well-preserved Middle Devonian coral reef[1] along with rare tabulate and rugose corals, crinoids, gastropods, and trilobites.

The site was declared a National Natural Landmark in November 1967.[2] It is often used by local paleontology classes.[1]
