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

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


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.
