Overview
Chambers County, created in 1832, embraces the southernmost hills and streams of the Piedmont Plateau and sections of the Chattahoochee River to the east and the Tallapoosa River to the west. Cotton cultivation and textile manufacturing propelled the trajectory of the first 150 years in the county. Images of America: Chambers County presents an array of images of places and people who began life on the frontier, created local government, experienced Native American uprising, served in the Civil War and two world wars, cultivated thousands of productive acres with ox and mule, organized towns, constructed railroads, and built one of the nation's largest textile operations. This bounty of photographs, most of which was provided from family collections, furthers an understanding of the unique story of Chambers County in the ongoing development of the American experience.
