The earliest records of salt being harvested from the Road Bay pond date back to the 1600s. It is no doubt that, before this time, the Amerindians – who also dug many wells that are still in existence to this day – utilised the rock salt harvested from the pond.
In the early 1900’s an industry was built around the abundance of naturally occuring salt which became a major economic earner for Anguilla.
