Mike Watson: Tobacco as a cash crop

Tobacco has played a major role in Adair County's economy - and Adair County tobacco products were especially prized by buyers, fetching superior prices. Mike Watson traces the history of early tobacco production here and in neighboring counties with notes of innovations by local growers and the coming of the tobacco warehouse system, writing, 'Many early records mention Adair businessmen who bought and sold tobacco by the hogshead and waited for the water to rise enough on the Green River to launch a flatboat bound for New Orleans. John Field was one of the Columbia merchants who regularly bought and sold tobacco. Later, tobacco warehouses were erected Greensburg and Campbellsville, these came with construction of better roads. In time, tobacco could be hauled to more distant markets, such as Lebanon, Springfield, Bowling Green and Louisville'

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian

The natives of the Americas cultivated tobacco long before the European re-discovery of the New World. It was a major product, important in every-day life and in ritual. With the coming of the Europeans, tobacco found a new life. In a few short years, the importation of the "weed" into Europe became big business. Jamestown Colony settlers found the plant to be the salvation of the colony. When problems with the native population became intense, the streets of Jamestown were plowed over and planted in tobacco. A true cash crop was born from the scrawny plants of that day. John Rolfe and others crossbred varieties to develop a larger, milder product. Tobacco, then, will be the salvation of many early Americans.
