The Alma Salt Works, seen here in 1874, was located, generally, in the 600 block of Grand Street in Alma, Kansas. The derrick from the brine well is clearly visible. In the distance at the far left the first Wabaunsee County Courthouse, the Meyer Store and Peter Degan’s Germania Hall are all easily recognizable. Just behind the smokestack at the center is the second Wabaunsee County Courthouse.
