Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acworth, Georgia, is an archetypal railroad town located just north of the booming metropolis of Atlanta. As it developed from a Cherokee trail to a town defined by train rails, and as it matured from a landscape dotted by farmsteads to a trade center, recreation lure, and suburban magnet, Acworth has retained its enduring charm and quality of life. Residents enjoy the quiet, peaceful pace afforded to those who make their homes in small towns; they have prospered and made livelihoods in a variety of ways-from gold mines to cotton bales to mill works. The community these hard-working men and women have created, and the lives they have enjoyed, are highlighted in this unique volume. Images of America: Acworth includes drawings, photographs, and postcards that capture the spirit of the town as a pioneer settlement, rail center, Civil War encampment, mill town, and lakeside village. Vintage images of homes, churches, clubs, and sports teams, culled from local libraries, scrapbooks, and personal collections, celebrate the social fabric of Acworth life and tell the story of the town's history through everyday faces and places.

About the Author
