Stewart County Iron Industry 1820-1927For more than a century Stewart County, Tennessee, was an active industrial iron producer in an agricultural south. The ruins of this limestone slab furnace are all that is left of the Great Western Iron Works, once one of eighteen such iron manufacturing centers in the county. The Great Western operated for just one 34-week period in 1855-56. During that time it produced 1,350 tons of high-quality iron.
