Notes
  • Significance: The Bessemer plant of the U.S. Pipe Company was one of the first pipe factories established in Alabama, in a region that became synonymous with foundry production. U.S. Pipe owned and controlled the deLavaud patent for the centrifugal casting of iron pipe, installing deLavaud machines at Bessemer in 1934. The plant was also the last in U.S. Pipe, and one of the last in the country, to abandon traditional pit casting, removing the last pipe pit in the late 1950s.
