Lummus Cotton Gin Works


Photo of Lummus Cotton Gin Works, Juniper, Georgia. The caption under the photograph reads: "These works were erected in 1871. They are located between Macon and Columbus, GA., on the Central railroad. The product consists of cotton grins and ginning machinery, and the mill does a very large repair business. the works have recently been enlarged. The amount of capital invested is $40,000 and the factories have never been operated to the fullest extent. There is good machinery and an abundance of choice timber near by. The site is finely adapted for a good cotton mill, and there is plenty of water power - probably 300 horse-power - drawn from a lake covering 500 acres and fed by a large creek. This power never fails in drouth or any other time. The present business has always been prosperous."
