and How It Was Made

Bricks for the kilns were made from a very light clay and lime, which probably came from deposits in Jump Creek. The lime was burned in nearby kilns and mixed with clay to produce a tough lightweight brick. Though wages were only $1.50-$2.00 a day, the kilns must have cost several thousand dollars each.
These buildings and artifacts are the remains of an important chapter in Idaho's history. They are important as a way to learn about the life and times of those involved in mining. They are especially important because there are few written records and photographs. Please do not collect souvenirs.
