Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1877 Excerpt: ...exists in the north part of the county. The manufacturing establishments are principally the lead furnaces, flouring mills, saw-mills and two woolen-mills. There are bl,266 acres of improved land, 50,909 acres of woodland, besides 56,012 acres of other unimproved land. The average price for improved bottom land is $30 per acre; of upland, $20 to S2S per acre; of unimproved bottom land, $ 10 to $13 per acre, and of upland, $S to $12 per acre.

Wild grapes of excellent quality are found everywhere in great abundance, proving beyond doubt that the county is well adapted to viticulture. The railroad facilities are excellent; the M. C. and N. S. W. R. R has a track of 36 miles, running from southeast to northwest, connecting on the east with the A. and P. R. R., and on the west with the M. R. F. S. and Gulf R. R.
