COURT HOUSE AT CLAKKSVILLE,
JAM 10 1905
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
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.
