Brownsport Furnace

The Brownsport Furnace began operations in the 1830’s. It was located about 13 miles southeast of Decaturville near the Tennessee River in an area that covered around 12,000 acres and has come to be known as “the Coalings”. Brownsport Furnace was the first hot-blast furnace built in the State of Tennessee and was, for many years, one of the largest furnaces in the State.

A commissary was built for the laborers and workers lived in log cabins on the area. Unlike many Western Highland Rim ironworks, Brownsport escaped destruction during the Civil War.  Lieutenant-Commander Leroy Fitch listed the presence of the furnace on a U.S. Navy reconnaissance report in March 1863.  He identified the facility as a foundry and noted that the owners were known to be Unionists.

The furnace was operated successfully for a period of 30 years and ore of fine quality and of great abundance was found, but an extensive lawsuit developed, causing the company to close in 1878. It was never re-opened. The commissary was converted into a dwelling house in later years.

Over the years, the machinery, bricks, and lumber were sold and reused elsewhere.  Decatur County Parks and Recreation now oversees the remains of the furnace stack and some of the surrounding acreage.  Brownsport Furnace is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is accessible to the public.
