Has anyone ever tried to locate a salt lick on a map from the 1700 or 1800's. I recently found a map of a nearby salt lick where a man was killed and scalped by Indians. Just curious if they would still be there after this long etc..

If it was a natural lick it should still be there and easy to find

I read about the natural salt licks around here..in Tennessee history class while I was in the 6th grade.. I have always wondered where they were also.. you would think someone on here would have found one..

Natural licks can be depleted! Depends on how much ocean water was trapped in that particular spot , millions of years ago.

Chronicles of the Cumberland is the name of the book where the map is. They are not online that I know of.
