Bromide Charcoal Kilns

Moffat County

Dating from 1898, the four stone charcoal kilns are important as the only remaining intact structures associated with the Bromide Mining and Milling Company’s smelter facility.  The period of intensive operations at the facility extended through the end of World War I.

The kilns are in excellent condition and clearly reflect the beehive shape associated with structures constructed to process wood into charcoal.  They have been ranked by a researcher of Colorado’s coke ovens and charcoal kilns as the best surviving examples of their type in the state.

The kilns were evaluated and documented with a State Historical Fund Grant.
