      The doe run lead plant is probably 45 miles north of my house. I thaught every body here would like to know how we get are lead. It is a very long and interesting prosses . Converting the ore into lead . I thaught they just mined it crushed it up and put it into big ovens.History lesson over 20 families from this area in the 1820’s or so moved from this area to now the San Antonio area. They  fought in the Alamo and the battal of San jacinta. Some big name people came from this area that moved to TX. To bad this smelter is closed down. The nairator speaking sounds like a young Paul Harvey. If you are old enough to rember who he was https://youtu.be/6HhdkkdsvTM
