Lafayette Fluorspar Mill

Early view of the Lafayette Fluorspar Mill near Frances, Kentucky, during the heyday of Crittenden County's fluorspar production. Today, visitors to the area can relive those days at the Ben E. Clement Mineral Museum located in Marion, the county seat. (Photo courtesy of Matthew T. Patton, 1317 West Airy Street, Apt. 1-D, Norristown, PA 19401-4386, e-mail: [email protected])
