Inside the Enormous Grand Saline Salt Mine

This picture was printed in the Grand Saline Sun, Thursday, May 29, 1975. It was a special edition of the paper during the first Salt Festival that had been celebrated in quite a few years. There were lots of old Grand Saline pictures submitted to the paper for print in that edition. You will find them in this section. This picture is of the inside of the enormous Grand Saline Salt Mine. There are many "rooms" in the mine, each averaging 80 feet high and 60 feet wide. This is one of them.
