dc.description.abstractThe Southern Cotton Oil Co., formerly the Buckeye Cotton Oil Plant, is a factory located at 2782 Chelsea Avenue in the Northeast area of Memphis. The site was first used in 1931. The architect for the buildings on this site is unknown, but it is Eclectic in style. The site features many rectangular buildings of varying size all with pitched roofs. The buildings are made of metal most likely steel or aluminum. The most interesting part of the site, however, is the large cylinders in a row and topped with cones. By now the cylinders have collected quite a bit of rust.
