Lisbon in Grafton County, New Hampshire — The American Northeast (New England)
Old Coal Kiln
A reminder of bygone days, this stone structure was used to make wood into charcoal for the nearby iron smelters. Pine knots, a waste material from the adjacent lumber mill, were a prime source for charcoal. Charcoal production through this kiln, built in the 1860's, was necessary to the iron mining industry.
