The giant Coplay Cement Company Kilns, located in Saylor's Park on North Second Street in Coplay, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. These ninety foot tall vertical Kilns were in use From 1893 to 1904 when they were superseded by more advanced cement kiln technology. In the 1920s all the surrounding Coplay Cement Company buildings were demolished and the top 30 feet of each kiln was removed for some reason. The kilns are surrounded by the Ironton Rail Trail which is part of the "Rails to Trails" program that takes abandoned rail lines and converts them to multi-use recreation paths.
