Steam engines...cotton presses...iron and brass castings...locomotive engines...boilers...and tons of other equipment. All were manufactured at some time at The Foundry. Significant in Selma as an American Industrial Revolution site, it may also have supported the Confederate Naval Arsenal, which was burned after the 1865 Battle of Selma. However, the earliest documentation for work done there is 1869.
The Foundry will be on tour during Selma's Historic Pilgrimage March 14-16, and visitors can view some of the equipment used during a succession of industrial progress.
