Inscription.  
In 1858 P. & N. Harsh built a small brewery near Franklin College on Stones River Pike. E.D. Crossman & M.J. Drucker took over in 1860, renaming it the Tennessee Brewery. After fire destroyed it in 1860 and again in 1864, Drucker rebuilt it as the Spring Water Brewery and leased to L. Mankel and M. Frank in 1866. F. Laitenberger (of Germantown's City Brewery) assumed the lease briefly until the brewery closed in 1872 due to competition from the Nashville Brewing Company.
