Costco to Host Book Signing for Stone Mountain Author

Local Author will be available to sign copies of pictorial history

 
PRLog - Jan. 27, 2014 - ATLANTA -- Through more than 200 vintage images, Stone Mountain tells a story that reflects Georgia’s history and captivates its unique small town life. As of 2014, Stone Mountain is celebrating its 175th birthday.

The volume includes a series of photographs taken of the city in 1903 along the Georgia Railroad and its crossings, showing its appearance at the start of the twentieth century.

The shared identity of the city and mountain is shown as many residents derived both their livelihoods and their lifestyles from the mountain in its backyard. Mary Beth Reed, board member of the Stone Mountain Historical Society states, “The book was truly a community effort, compiled by volunteers.”

Highlights of Stone Mountain include:

·         Many Stone Mountain families have shared their images with the Society to compile this book celebrating the city’s 175th birthday.

·         The book shows the importance of Main Street in Georgia and the nation’s history.

·         A portion of the profits from the sale of the book will be donated to the Stone Mountain Historical Society to help fund the creation of a digital archive.
