When Cotton Was King
This photograph of Newnan shows the north side of the Court Square in the 1890s crowded with wagons coming to market when cotton was still king. The Confederate monument, which has since been moved to the Coweta County Courthouse grounds, stands in the center of the street at right. The steeple of Newnan First Baptist Church can be seen in the distance of the picture.
