and How They Were BuiltThese are three of the four charcoal kilns that remain of the original sixteen that were once located here. These beehive shaped kilns were constructed of brick and designed to stand 20 feet in both height and diameter. The walls were plastered inside and out, making them a foot or more thick. The structures were bound with heavy steel cables and set on thick stone and brick foundations which were built on a shelf cut into the slope of the draw. Each kiln was built with two doors through which wood was loaded.
