Book Description Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Since more than 500 towns have disappeared from the Georgia landscape over the past century, the book was written to reconstruct 14 ghost towns in Crawford County that no longer exist, most disappearing from Georgia maps. The book also focuses on Byron, Georgia, which, by virtue of Interstate Highway 75 passing through North Peach County during the late 1960s, transitioned from a sleepy little hamlet that grew up beside the railroad tracks, to a thriving, bustling city repositioned along the I-75 corridor. Left behind in its old business district are aging, vacant buildings which once were the hub of business activity and gathering places for local citizenry. As you read the book, not only will you visualize the materialization of towns that no longer exist, but you will enjoy humorous historical accounts such as the jilted bride who, on her wedding day, ripped off her wedding dress after learning her betrothed had just married someone else. You can visit the town where Margaret Mitchell conceptualized the plantation Tara in her book, Gone with Wind. And the list goes on. Vanished Towns Revisited contains more than 200 photographs expressly selected to augment the narrative and to make past events and historic personages come alive on the printed page.
