During the Civil War, this settlement was an important trade center providing salt for much of the Confederacy and the population grew to about 10,000. The area is no longer used for salt ‘mining,’ but is used for fishing, swimming, and picnicking. Today the population is much smaller, but the area shares its history with the annual Drake Salt Works/Saline Creek Festival.
