Chasing Shadows: Just an old salt (cauldron)

Published: Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at 02:19 PM.

Franklin County has always been salty!

This antique metal cauldron was discovered in the mud at Alligator Harbor by Gail Heuring. It is currently on display outside of the Carrabelle History Museum.

Museum Director Tamara Allen believes it is an old cauldron used to concentrate salt by evaporating seawater. She would like to know more about the old pot and the salt works that was once located at Alligator Point.

Chasing Shadows would like to help. If you have any information about the salt works or this cauldron, please contact the Times at 653-8868 or contact Lois Swoboda at lswoboda@starfl.com.
