The past is the present for future generations who do not know their history

Colbert County had two…

Nitrate Plants. They were named Nitrate Plant No 1 and Nitrate Plant No 2. Lou Ella Murray was an enterprising little lady who managed her family affairs with aplomb. When her child Imogene was small, she would take them and head to one of the Nitrate Plants near lunch time. She would offer for sale a cool refreshing jar, mason jar likely, of fresh milk. The men got a healthy service right at the gate; and my great-grandmother made a little money for her family that she loved.
