The pipe marked DL & CO 1889 for Dennis Long and Company was unearthed in Cahaba Heights. Dennis Long was a native of Londonderry, Ireland who began the manufacture of cast iron pipe prior to the Civil War in Louisville, Kentucky. Long won and lost several fortunes in his business career while also investing in railroads and steamboats. In 1899, his factory was sold to U.S. Pipe and operated until 1913.
