Troup County in Vintage Postcards traces a major period of growth and development for this Georgia community, from the late 19th through the mid-20th century. Snapshot glimpses of history preserved on postcards reveal the second courthouse, which burned in 1936; the textile mills that opened at a rapid pace as the county entered the era of the "New South;" the early days of LaGrange Female College, which became co-ed in 1954; Southern Female College, which closed in 1919; Ferrell Gardens, which began in 1832 and is now a landmark in the county; as well as scenes of schools, churches, homes, farms, and businesses.
