The Stack at Muscoda

Posted by: Naaman

This giant brick smokestack was erected over 100 years ago. There were once many like it in the Birmingham area. Now there is one. The rest have been harvested for their brick or succumbed to nature.

This stack helped conduct the No. 5 mine, which was a limestone mining operation. 

This smokestack is the last of its kind in Alabama.

    2. Marketing, dude! Why choose when you can make one book per location? Oo, then you can do themed books for more: all the mines in one, for instance, then old buildings, so on. ^_^
