The ore used here (red hematite) was from Dirtseller Mountain, 3 miles away and was hauled to the stock house bank in two wheel carts. The ore was broken up into small pieces by slaves using sledge hammers. The charcoal was burned in the surrounding forests. The entire output of this plant was contracted for by the Nitre and Mining Bureau of the Confederate States and most of it went to the foundry of the Nobles in Rome. Complete batteries were constructed here-cannon, carriage, and caisson.

In the following year Bessemer No. 1 and No. 4 (Robertstown Furnaces) were dismantled in 1935. _ BIBB FURNACES (Known also as Brierfield, Strother, and Bibb Naval Furnaces) Bibb County, near Brierfield No. 1-1861 No. 2-1863 THE State of Alabama seceded from the Union on Jan. 11, 1861 and during the turbulence and confusion of this same year, Bibb County's second blast furnace was constructed under the leadership of C.

Superimposed was a brick draft stack about 25' high making an overall "height of about 50'. The stack was built of hand hewn stone and lined with hand made brick of local clay. From the evidence of other early iron-makers it is safe to assume that a major portion of the work was performed by slaves.
