Significance: The Mantua Lime Kiln is a typical late 19th century shaft kiln structure which was built into the side of a steep slope near Mantua, Utah. It was constructed by local businessman James W. Sheffield of Brigham City in 1892 and operated until ca. 1905-1907. The kiln is a typical example of an industrial structure quite common in Utah during the 1890s, just prior to the time when concrete came into widespread use in building construction. This kiln was locally important in supplying much of the lime used for construction of many residential, municipal and commercial structures in Brigham City. It also represents one of only two remaining lime kiln structures in the Brigham City area.
