Railroad From Dalton to Spring Place, 1888
published at Dalton, Georgia,
September 20, 1888:
A Railroad to Operate between Dalton and Spring Place?
Some Facts and Figures about the Project–Will
Whitfield and Murray Counties Build the Road?
A railroad from Dalton to Spring Place! This is a project that the people of Dalton and Murray County have quietly agitated for some time. We do not know that it has ever been put squarely before the people, but it has been discussed more or less by them and through the public prints. It is generally admitted by everyone who has given the matter thought and consideration that road would pay. It would be the only road tapping the County of Murray and it would be the means of developing a rich section. That county furnishes a large amount of trade that Dalton receives, and, if by chance it should be lost to this city, it would materially affect our business interests. It behooves our people, then to unit with the county of Murray and give them what they have long wanted and needed–a railroad connection.
