Thomas H. Dummett Sugar And Rum Processing Factory Ruins
Ormond Beach, FL - These ruins are the remains of a sugar and rum processing factory. The chimmney is about all that is left of the facility. A furnace or oven was used to heat the sugar cane juice. As the juice boiled, it was skimmed off by hand and placed in a cooler kettle and eventually as the impurities were eliminated, the resultant syrup was allowed to harden. It was then further processed into crystaline form and then to raw sugar. A lot of the juice remaining from the purification process was shipped to the Carribean and used in the rum industry.
