New Jail Being Built at Chatsworth, 1915

From The Chatsworth Times
Feb. 18, 1915

WORK ON JAIL BEGAN TUESDAY

H. J. Carr & Company, Contractors,
Say They Will Have Building
Completed Within Sixty Days.

H. J. Carr & Company, of Atlanta, who secured the contract for building the new $12,000.00 jail last fall, but ceased operations on the building until the final decision of the Supreme court, began work Tuesday morning with a full force of hands and will push the work as rapidly as possible until it is completed. They think they will have it finished within sixty days.

The Manly Machine Works, of Dalton, has secured the contract for building the cells, which is a guarantee that that part of the work will come up right as they make a specialty of jails.

When this building is completed it will be one of the most up-to-date in North Georgia, and it is doubtful if there is a better one in the state considering the size of the county as to population.

Mr. Alexander Blair, of Macon, is the architect. He has spent years at the business and there is none better in the country. He will be on the job every day to see that the house is build according to plans and specifications.
