15. Iron Works & Arsenal

Title

15. Iron Works & Arsenal

Description

Since their founding in the mid-19th century, the Iron Works and One Arsenal Place first manufactured agricultural tools for the local plantation economy. During the Civil War, these facilities became a lead producer of textiles and gunboat parts for the Confederate navy. After Union troops burned these important industrial targets at the close of the war, they were quickly rebuilt and subsequently produced industrial ice machines and more recently Char-Broil grills. The Iron Works is now the city’s Convention and Trade Center, while One Arsenal Place is home to Columbus State University’s departments of History and Geography, Art, and Theatre.
