Marathon Motor Works 1907 - 1914

Situated in downtown Nashville, just off interstate 65, commuters pass by a group of buildings that offer only small clues to their past prominence. Barry Walker, the present owner of the buildings, quietly inches his way, restoring the buildings to their prior glory.

The main building was constructed in 1881 as “The Phoenix Cotton Mill” also known as the Nashville Cotton Mill. By 1910 the building was vacant.
