Notes
  • Significance: The most distinctive feature of the site today is the set of twelve remaining Minter System down draft kilns. Constructed in 1923, 1925, and 1941, the kilns are part of a waste-heat reuse system that brought heat from cooling kilns back to the dryer tunnels and to other kilns in various stages of the burning process. In use in various parts of the United States and Canada, Minter kilns were most popular with Southern brickmakers. These are some of the last of the Minter System kilns still in existence.
