A bit of Lewisburg, TN History
Long before the times of Air Conditioning, the history of Lewisburg began. Lewisburg is located in Marshall County and was of course originally settled by Native Americans. Revolutionary War Veterans were awarded land in the Lewisburg area by North Carolina following the war, in the 1780’s. Did you know that 3 of the State of Tennessee Governors hail from the area as well? That’s right, Henry Horton operated a farm and a Mill in Marshall County, right on the Duck River. Jim Nance McCord had roots in Lewisburg as well. His wife was from there and his brother owned a book store in Lewisburg. He even served as Mayor of Lewisburg from 1916 to 1942, and was the publisher of the Marshall Gazette! Buford Ellington, governor of Tennessee from 1967 to 1971, served the Tennessee House of Representatives from Marshall County’s seat in the late 40’s and early 50’s. Of course, in those days residential and commercial Air Conditioning was a fairly new concept.
Air Conditioning Came into Play
Around the 1920’s, air conditioning was put into production for residential use. It helped advance the population in the warm, southern states and created a great migration in the United States. Still, it was only in 10% of homes as late as the 1960’s according to the Carrier Corporation. To help fight the heat, many Southern Families would sleep on the front porch or pour water on the wood floors before bedtime. By the end of the 20th century, nearly 86% of all homes had some sort of air conditioning from window units to the more modern Central Heat and Air units.
