Hoffman Kiln Minera
Hoffman Kiln Minera
Looking at the interior of a Hoffman Kiln at what is left of the Minera Lime Quarry. Erected in 1868, after a large injection of investment into the Minera Lime Company, this type of Kiln was originally designed for brickmaking but the design was soon adapted for lime burning, and this was one of the first. There are 24 chambers each capable of holding 120 tons of limestone, which was burned sequentially, with a central chimney and the fuel was fed from above.
