Hall's Trees to Pay for Hospital, 1949
May 21, 1949
Man Denied Aid Helps Build
By Odom Fanning, Staff Writer
Chatsworth, Ga., May 21, 1949.
Finally—and here's where the contentious old man bared his inner goodness—Mr. Hall directed that all "the merchantable timber from size eight inches at the top of the stump" and larger be sold. I will and direct that said funds be used to help build a section or ward in said hospital to be equipped for the treatment and care of the victims of cancer."
The financial foundation for the Murray County hospital had already been laid by V. C. Picketing, Chatsworth hotel owner and road contractor. He was the man who built the road across Fort Mountain from Ellijay to Chatsworth. When Mr. Pickering died in 1946 of heart disease, he left $100,000 to found and build the hospital.
