Everyone needs to take a little time to see the great history here. We have been here many times and this was the first time we stopped at the salt works and read the stories. Take the time!!

This monument is an example of the creativity of our ancestors as they prepared for their trip back home. Salt was produced from sea water as a food preservative. Although historically interesting, the monument is a little underwhelming.

This is really a 5 min stop to see a spot where some people on Lewis & Clark expedition stopped to make salt from seawater. Nice for history buffs.

A small display of how Lewis and Clark made salt while they were here on the North Coast preparing for their return trip home. It's a small reconstruction, but some graphic boards explain how they did it.

Although this is not the exact place of the L & C Salt Works, it is still worth the short visit to get a feel for the intense labor that these men went to. Very informative and historically factual.

A tiny history lesson shoe-horned into a residential area! A good 10-minute look around & move on to the beach! Informative, nice interpretative display.

Enjoyed the walk down the Prom to the Salt Works. Not a lot to see but still historical and educational.
