Western Salt Works Building

In operation since the 1870's, the Western Salt Works Company has played an important role in the solar salt industry in Southern California. The site retains a high degree of integrity and has changed very little since its reconstruction following the great flood of 1916. By 1922, the Salt Works grew to nine buildings and 32 salt ponds and levees. This complex of early 20th century industrial works conveys a sense of function and industry that is unique. During the late 1990's a move to incorporate the Salt Works as part of a National Wildlife Reserve was proposed; the plan was finalized by 1999. Deemed National Register eligible, this property should stand as a testimony to purpose and longevity.
