INTRODUCTION

We feel confident that the citizens of Athens will appreciate, and be proud of this edition of the Athens City Directory. Its appearance indicates an enterprising, prosperous city, and the contents of the volume will amply prove that appearances in this instance are not deceitful. The plan of the work divides the information contained in the book into three parts: The first pages are devoted to the miscellaneous information, consisting of lists of city and county officers, church directory, secret and benevolent societies, schools, State government, post-office information, the police and fire departments, and many other useful items; this is followed by the Directory proper, showing the names, occupation and addresses of all of the residents of the city, and the whole is supplemented by a complete classified Business Directory, containing the names and addresses of all persons engaged in business, or the professions arranged under the headings to which they properly belong. This information has been compiled and collected by competent and experienced persons, and we have spared neither time nor expense to make the work as complete and reliable as possible.

We desire to return our thanks to the business men and citizens who have favored us with their patronage, and who have so cheerfully given all information requested of them.

July, 1889.

M.C. Pope & Co.
