Belmont Lime kiln
The kiln on the left was a perpetual kiln, that could be burned continuously, while the other two would have been batch kilns that were emptied after each burn.
David M. Mayer, owner of Belmont Farm, hired Henry Harrison Landis to build the kilns in 1876. Mayer also purchased hickory wood from Landis to fuel the lime burning operation.
Erected by Shoppes at Belmont.
