The world’s largest Cedar Bucket was originally built in 1887 as a promotional item by the Tennessee Red Cedar Wooden Works Company, a manufacturer of cedar buckets in Murfreesboro.
It holds 1556 gallons, it stands nearly six feet tall and is six feet wide at the base and made of red cedar wood.
After being a world traveler, the massive container, was brought back toMurfreesboro, to a new home in Cannonsburgh in 1976. Sadly, arsonists torched the landmark during June of 2005.
Using the original hardware, the Rutherford County Blacksmith Association restored the bucket to its former beauty in time to celebrate Murfreesboro’s Bicentennial in 2012.
Today, it is back home in Cannonsburgh, located in a protected enclosure.
