Twin Cities Chamber of Commerce
Welcome to the Twin Cities Fulton, Kentucky and So. Fulton, Tennessee
Our towns, as you probably know, are located in two states. We have two city governments and two school systems. Fulton School System is an independent system and South Fulton Schools are part of the Obion County Tennessee School System.
Welcome to the Twin Cities, Fulton, Kentucky and South Fulton, Tennessee. We hope you enjoy your visit, and we hope you will decide to stay. The Twin Cities are also conveniently located close to Kentucky Lake for those who enjoy outdoor activities.
The towns were started in 1929 by B. F. Carr. The community prospered as a railroad town, and at one time was the “Banana Capitol of the World.” Prior to the invention of refrigerated rail cars, almost 90 percent of the bananas that came into this part of the United States were stopped into Fulton to be iced down.
As the years have passed, the railroad is still an important part of our economy. We move approximately 2,000 cars daily through our yards. We have diversified and prospered in other areas as well. We manufacture car parts, sportswear, portable buildings, specialty trailers and plastics. We have one of the largest mechanical contracting firms in the United States, and we are home to Ferry Morse Seed Company.
I hope the enclosed information will give you an even better picture of the Twin Cities. Please do not hesitate to call if I can be of any further help.
