Lucas found out about this 100 year old kiln in the middle of Jamul. I am always down for a new adventure. From 1889-1892 a company ored limestone out of the hills in limestone, used rail cars to hall it to the kiln, then heated it so they could make cement out of it. They went out of business and disassembled the wooden structure that surrounded it. However they left the 3 story high kiln still standing in the middle of Jamul. The Jamul Portland Cement Manufacturing Company was founded in 1889. for more information visit the San Diego Historical Society Website

These are some pictures of our adventure.

    Zach,
    Whatever happen to that little green gnome? Didn’t he say something about needing a ride? Oh well he can fend for himself. Next time I’m in San Diego we’re going to go scope out some more treasures of the 19th century, be ready.
