Rock Run Comissary

When I saw this building today I was moving across Cherokee County, Alabama at a pretty good clip. I turned around to go back and get a photograph. I pulled up in the church parking lot across the road and took my photographs. A silver haired gentleman and his wife were the only folks in the parking lot…as a matter of fact they were the only folks at church.  Mr. Strickland told me that the building was a commissary for a iron smelting operation.  He pointed out where other building had been replaced with privet hedges and trees.  Cherokee Historical Society signage states that the Rock Run Furnace operated from 1874 until 1923. Mr. Strickland said it was quite the community.
