  1. I found the Salt Museum web site and from there a 25 minute video about the history of salt mining. Very very interesting. How hard the work was and dangerous too. Many immigrants found work there. The film provided so much more than just about salt. So much history! Oh, I and learned how to pronounce Onondaga Lake. 🙂
