For more than 200 years, Gainesville, Georgia, has been the trading and business center for Northeast Georgias mountain region. Its character dictated by rugged mountain terrain and independent, self-reliant people, Gainesville entertains a unique
history quite different from the traditional plantation culture of the American South. Celebrated within these pages are the people and places of this Queen City of the Mountains. With images culled primarily from the Hall County Library and the Archives of the State of Georgia, Gainesville: 19002000 captures the memories of the twentieth century on the eve of the millennium. From its days as the Great Health Resort of the South to its transition into a metropolitan community, Gainesville has experienced enormous growth and change. Included in this collection are images of the disastrous 1936 tornado that swept through the city, the mills that were active in the early 1900s, and the poultry industry that became a dominant
economic force in Gainesville. Residents will delight in the early photographs of the town square that reflect a simpler way of life.
