Montgomery County, 
Tennessee. 



I 



If you wish a good home in a moral, intelli- 
gent and thrifty community, come to Montgomery ^ 
county, Tenuessee. A 

The county lies in the upper region of Middle A 

Tennessee, its northern most boundary being the s 

Kentucky line. It is a delightful section in which y 

A to dwell. The extremes of heat and cold are A 

S alike unknown. It is proverbially healthy. The ^ 

V rain fall is abundant nearly every year; no insect ^ 

A pests destroy the crops; no disastrous tornado has A 

S ever visited the region. The people are hospita- ^

ble, and the stranger within their gates is soon 
made to feel as one of them. 

The population of the county in 1900 was 
36,017. The assessed value of all taxable prop- 
erty in 1904 is $7,468,910.00. 

The land for the most part is rolling, and 
well watered, and stock farms pay well. The 
principal agricultural products are corn, wheat, 
tobacco, hay, vegetables of every variety, and 
fruits and berries in abundance. There is still 
much valuable timber in the county. The prin- 
cipal varieties are Poplar, White Oak, Red Oak, 
Maple, Hickory, Cedar, Walnut, Dog Wood, etc. 
South of the Cumberland River the land is rich 
in iron ore of a valuable quality. 

Transportation facilities are excellent. The 
Cumberland River runs diagonally through the 
county from southeast to northwest. The Louis-

s ville & Nashville Railroad runs from northeast g 
y to southwest, a distance of twenty-five miles. \J 
A The Princeton Railroad runs northward to the 
Kentucky line; the Mineral Railroad southward 
to and beyond the county line; and the Ten- 
nessee Central Railroad, recently constructed, has 
twenty-five miles of track in the county. 



Farmers and others are waking up to the 
importance of good highways over which their 
products may be transported to market, and more 
than fifty thousand dollars has been spent this 
year in improving roads. 

The Public School system of the county can 
not be excelled in any community, North or 
South. School houses are to be found in every 
section, and the schools are in session eight 
months in the year. The blacks are educated 
from the general school fund, though colored

children are taught in different buildings under 
colored teachers. 

To all industrious people seeking homes a 
hearty invitation is extended to visit Montgomery 
county, Tennessee. All sectional bitterness here 
has long since been buried. The new comer if he 
be moral and industrious will find a home here 
where his life can be spent pleasantly, and where 
his sons and daughters will grow up to be useful 
men and women.
