Anybody have any more info on that company?My Dad told me about an old salt well company that had once existed near Silver Springs. They were bought out by a competitor, who subsequently brought in a freight car load of iron pigs and dumped them down the well to "spike" it, so no other competitor could ever re-use that well. The State found out about this and passed legislation that forbids the deliberate destruction of natural resources.

My guess is they were probably both done around the same time, and I would hazard a further guess that they may have been done during the rebuilding of the Portage "Viaduct" (as Wikipedia calls it) in 1875 since the line was pretty much shut down anyway.
