South Park Brewery

The South Park Brewery (originally the Summer’s Brewery) is the town’s largest and most impressive structure and houses the “Bayou Salado” exhibit. It is a three story building, constructed of native red sandstone. The rock was quarried from the vicinity of Red Hill Pass.

One enters the brewery through a rustic doorway, then down a flight of narrow wooden steps to the basement of the ice room. Here, a short slide show, accompanied by narration and music, portrays the history of South Park and its residents. The script is derived partly from diaries, biographies and newspaper quotations. it offers a very interesting and dramatic presentation.
