Armour Fertilizer Works #9 Locomotive - Columbia, TN

Armour Fertilizer Works #9

Armour Fertilizer Works was a phosphate mining & processing company that flourished in Maury County in the early part of the last century. This 36" Narrow Guage 0-4-0T was built in 1927 by Vulcan Iron Works of Wilkes-Barre, PA. It was moved here at Maury County Park in Columbia in 1988 for the 100th anniversary of the local Phosphate Industry. The locomotive has been nicknamed the Louis J. Finney Special in honor of the local civil leader who was part of the county's park commission.
