Old Habersham County Courthouse Postcard
- Habersham County's Second Courthouse
-- Late 1800s
- This postcard bears a Feb. 17, 1910 postmark
from Clarkesville, Ga. The caption on the photo says: Habersham
County's Court House, Erected 1832, Torn Down 1898, Clarksville,
Ga." [Clarkesville was originally spelled "Clarksville."]
- The postcard does not indicate the date of
the photo or what event is shown. Obviously, the photo was taken
before the courthouse's demolition in 1898. Apparently, a holiday
or other festive occasion is being celebrated, as suggested by
the fact that everyone is dressed up and the city band was present
(a musician carrying a large base drum marked "Clarksville"
can be seen at the far left of the photo).
