Redstone Coke Ovens

Saves: 5
Check-ins: 0
Built in 1899, this row of 90 ovens once produced coke (solid fuel with a high carbon content). The ovens are spread out over a length of 600 feet but there were once 200 ovens producing over 6 million tons per year. The purified fuel was then used to power the steel mills. With the closure of the nearby coal mine the coke ovens also closed down. Seeing the ovens is easy; they are a few feet away from State Hwy 133. You only have to pull to the side of the road (safely, of course)!
