Here was located the large and important Central Salt Works. Official government reports indicate that salt was being mined at this works as early as 1816, but the Indians had obtained salt here for centuries prior to this. During the blockade of 1861-1865 thousands came here from all over the state to obtain salt for their families. Remains of rock furnaces and wooden pipes can still be seen. Overshadowing this site is Salt Mountain.
