We had to kill a few minutes waiting for a shop to open, and we passed by the Acme Brick Company in Cayuga, Indiana. You can read some of its history here
As you can see it appears to be being dismantled...just with in the past year or so it has closed down the kilns. You can see my first post about them HERE
. And you can read a newspaper article about its closing Here
. We happened to find it quite by accident and always meant to go back and take a tour and just never made it back. I so regret that now...
When we were there, the guys we talked to told us the kilns were going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We did not have time that day or else it was the weekend, but the young man said the owners were always glad to give a tour.
I always hate to see a business close after such a long life.
I would love to go back and take more photos....
