19th-century industrial kilns in danger of being torn down

There kilns in Indiana from the 19th century, used to burn limestone into lime, are in danger of being torn down to make way for a sub-division.
Preservationists and Indiana officials thought enough of the structures, built into hillsides near Utica, Ind., to protect them from the Ohio River Bridges Project as part of a massive preservation plan.
But the kilns are now at risk — part of a dispute over who is responsible for keeping them intact and whether the project’s massive preservation plan really ensures their survival.
