Both local state parks have pamphlets describing the kilns in detail.

I've been reworking some of the local maps and ran across this.

Thought some of you might be interested.

Chuck Moores house sets very close to them. I walked back there once. Pretty cool!

Thanks, RiverFox.  Mitchell Howes was my great-great-grandfather.  Fascinating reading.

Funny. The map that shows the overlay of the "proposed" 62/265 interchange doesn't show any roundabouts. It shows the cloverleaf design.
 
Anyway. I have been back to the lime kiln at Chuck and Angie's many, many times. It is just so cool it sparked my and my husband's interest so much that we spent a good two hours researching lime kilns a few years ago.

I have a number of local ancestors who were quite prominent and are frequently mentioned in all the history resource materials.  Several were quite well to do.  Unfortunately, not a penny of that money trickled down in my direction.  LOL
