Since 1986, Monogram has been manufacturing top-of-the-line residential and commercial refrigerators that are shipped around the world. Known for their design, performance and exceptional craftsmanship, Monogram refrigerators are in a class of their own.

Selmer and Mulberry Solar Farms
Strata Solar, based in Chapel Hill, N.C., chose McNairy County as the ideal location to build two 20-megawatt solar farms. Together, the solar farms have more than 160,000 solar panels installed over 300 acres. Each farm is four times larger than the largest current solar installation on the Tennessee Valley Authority system and generate enough energy to power 4,000 homes each year. With a $100 million dollar investment, the Strata Solar project created 325 jobs in McNairy County.
Hockaday Handmade Brooms
Fourth generation Selmer broom maker Jack Martin is a prime example of McNairy County’s dedication to craftsmanship and tradition. Even today, the Martin family broom machine handcrafts each Hockaday Broom one at a time. Due to their impeccable craftsmanship, Hockaday Handmade Brooms are highly sought after across the nation. To support the folk arts in the community, Jack Martin started the Broomcorn Festival, inviting top artists across the country to McNairy County. It remains one of the finest and most authentic cultural festivals in the Southeast. In 2015, Jack Martin was honored with the Tennessee Governor’s Folklife Heritage Award, the state’s highest honor in the arts.
