Hi I just ran across this site is huge with articles and pictures of Columbus, Harris, surrounding Georgia counties.

http://www.angelfire.com/weird2/georgia/page10.html

This is one of the many articles listed there. Get on the site it has a lot of historical information.

HAMILTON

Hamilton, Georgia is the County seat for Harris County. It is just past Cataula coming from Columbus. Hamilton has a charming little square with all kinds of Markers and monuments. One was for the Town's first real fire alarm, a large black bell that replaced the towns original warning system, which was three fired shots. There is a tree that is a living memorial to a former citizen. There are several beautiful homes here. I remember in the late sixties or early seventies, The small downtown was revitalized with shops and at least an ice cream parlor, I wish I could remember what all else it had. I also remember there were outside country fairs in the square. There was also a Female College located here. It burned down in 1870 after 17 years of service.

Hope this will help.
