Steeped in History

As we approach this job’s finish, more history is making its way onsite. The Tennessee Coal and Iron medallion was a mounted a few weeks back, and is now accompanied by a Pratt Shops sign circa 1920s and US Steel’s embossed metal doors. Porch construction and final details are progressing on schedule.











Historical Medallion Marks Entry

With US Steel’s help, we located this plaque from a 1900’s circa building and mounted it above the entrance to their new building. It pays homage to Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad, formed in 1852 as one of the nation’s largest producers of steel. TCI merged with US Steel in 1907 and became the real estate division. The Preserve community is USS Realty’s most recent development, and this building will serve as their headquarters.

Our work is progressing as scheduled on all aspects of the project. Progress has been made from the exterior masonry, to the entrance where there will be a wrought iron door to the interior mechanical systems.
