Blanco: Peyton Colony Lime Kiln

The people of Peyton Colony built this lime kiln to make the ingredients necessary for mortar, and some of the buildings still standing in Blanco County were built with mortar from this kiln. The restored kiln is now part of a roadside park that makes a good place for travelers to stop.
