Salt is used basically everywhere where humans are present. Mostly in food - to enhance flavors and preserve meat and fish - but also in cosmetics and health industry. There is refined and unrefined salt. There is finely ground salt and coarsely ground salt. But rarely we think about its origin. Where does salt comes from? That's what this category is about: salt pans and salt mines.

in Salt Pans and Mines

The Mackey Salt Works on the Ilinois River in Indian Territory (near modern Ft. Gibson Oklahoma) was destroyed by US troops in the Civil War to keep the valuable salt works out of Confederate hands. Only kettles used there remain.
