Palm Coast's Stand Alone Chimney
A Journey into Palm Coast
It's become a unique roadside landmark of sorts - there at the corner of at the corner of Roberts Road and Colbert Lane .
A bit strange and different - what appears to be a factor chimney standing there by itself.
In fact, it is a chimney of what was once the Lehigh Cement Company plant that stood on the site.
There is a story behind the structure.
Here are some good sources to help find you the answers.
In summary, the plant's time in town was short (Built in 1952, ghost town by 1967 - a strike in between).
Today, the chimney is a quirky landmark of sorts.
Efforts have been made to include the chimney in the new project, but its days may well be numbered.
Thanks to Art Dycke's efforts, though, it will never be totally forgotten.
