Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park Professional Review and Guide
"The centerpiece of Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park is the furnace itself, named Bibb for the county where it was constructed. The story of the Bibb Furnace begins in 1862, when Caswell Campbell Huckabee saw the region’s commercial potential. Working with several partners, Huckabee formed the Bibb County Iron Company. Built with slave labor, the furnace was soon producing what was described as “the toughest and most suitable iron for making guns above any other in the South.”"
