Directions to Morton Salt Factory
Throughout history salt has held sway as a mineral of extreme importance and value. Why, it was even used as currency in ancient Rome at one point. Salt and the taxes that were levied against it have led to many wars.
Today, salt is still the mainstay of the economy on Inagua with Morton Salt being the second largest salt producerin the world. This company supplies North America with one million tons of sea salt a year.
The island of Inagua was populated by its first permanent settlers in 1803, mostly Bermudians from the Turks and Caicos Islands, who were in search of salt. Salt harvested in the shallow lakes was sold to passing ships.
In 1848 the Bahamian economy was in desperate need of an alternative salt supply when the Turks and Caicos Islands ceded. The Henagua Salt Pond Company, the first corporation in the Bahamas, was formed to revive the salt industry.
The Morton Salt Factory provides a tour rich in historical content to visitors interested in learning about this precious mineral.
