Atlantic Coast Lumber Company 1899

The lumber boom hit Georgetown at the turn of the 20th century and the Atlantic Coast Lumber Company was formed in 1899. By 1903, there were four sawmills and numerous support buildings. Streets were laid out, sewer and water systems were added, a hotel, mercantile store, and rows of houses were built to support the executives and mill workers. by Connie Jayroe-Owens http://www.gcdigital.org/.../collec.../GTNP02/id/4991/rec/10
