These kilns were built in the late 1800s to produce charcoal, which was a vital ingredient in the smelting of silver ore. They are considered some of the best-preserved charcoal kilns in the western United States and have been beautifully restored.
Visitors can learn about the history of the area and how the kilns played a significant role in the mining industry. The surrounding landscape is also stunning, with views of the nearby mountains and the Meadow Valley Wash. The area is perfect for hiking and picnicking, and there are several campsites nearby. One unique thing to see at the kilns are the large, cylindrical structures that were used for burning wood to create the charcoal. The kilns are also a great spot for stargazing at night, with very little light pollution in the area. Overall, Two Kilns Historic Charcoal Kilns is an excellent destination for history buffs and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
