Gulf States Paper Corporation (3/4 mile Northeast) began production in April 1929 to introduce the modern pulp and paper industry to Alabama. Based on the state's fast-growing forests, paper became a major Alabama industry.

The Tuskaloosa Paper Company made Alabama's first paper from rags in 1849 at a small mill at the foot of River Hill (3 ½ miles West), this early plant operated only a few years.
