Red Salt & Reynolds



Red Salt and Reynolds interprets the historic archeology at the Marmet Lock Replacement Project, in Kanawha County, West Virginia. The excavations uncovered four salt furnaces, John Reynolds’ mansion, the cabin occupied by his slaves and the cemetery where he and several family members were buried.


The film uses historic and industrial archeology, bioanthropology and historical documents to detail the rise and fall of the Reynolds family and local salt industry, which was once the largest salt producer in America.
