Significance: The Augusta Machine Works built the first industry located on the Augusta Canal's second level and supplied parts and machinery for canal structures. As the Confederate States Pistol Factory, it manufactured Pigdon-Ansley revolvers, "Confederate Colts," during the Civil War. With its conversion into the Augusta Lumber Company, it exemplified the self-sufficient, self-contained lumber operation.
