We viewed a short film about the
salt dome beneath Grand Saline.

A block of salt.

The Salt Palace has a brief film on the history of salt production (boiling salt brine) and mining the Grand Saline Salt Dome.  Just 12 people work in the mine,  The rest of the Morton Salt employees in Grand Saline work in the processing plant.

Photos taken inside the mine.

Morton Salt Company processes table salt, salt for agriculture use and salts used in 
scientific processes.

This small building is a
treasure trove of Morton
Salt promotions.
