Inscription


Organized in 1853, this facility
produced steam engines for the
Confederate Navy before being burned
by Federal troops in April of 1865.
Functioning again by September of
the same year, the firm manufactured
cast and wrought iron goods for
homes, farms, mills, and riverboats.
The plant burned again in 1902, and
the company built the structure
which still stands on the bluff
above the river.
