Marengo County Timber
Agriculture was the dominant component of Marengo County's economy until the mid-twentieth century, when the timber industry
boomed in the area. Today timber is one of the county's main resources, bolstered by the proximity of companies like Georgia
Pacific, Weyerhauser, Rock Tenn, and Linden Lumber.
