Charles Linn, 1814-1882. The following
information is from the brass plaque on the north side of the
mausoleum. "Son of a Swedish ironmaster, Linn built Birmingham's
first industry, Birmingham Car & foundry Co. (Linn Iron Works);
the first bank, The National Bank of Birmingham; and the city's
first park, called Linn Park. When the population was less than
4000, Linn prophesied: 'Bury me on the high promontory overlooking
the city of Birmingham, in which you men profess to have little
faith; so that I may walk out on Judgment Day and view the greatest
industrial city in the entire South.'" The plaque was placed
by the Linn-Henley Charitable Trust, established by Walter E.
Henley (1877-1961) for the citizens of Jefferson County.
