The Baraca Class at the Waterworks

Description

Assembled at the Newnan waterworks is the Baracca Class of the First Baptist Church in Newnan from the era of the 1930s. The photograph is thought to have been taken on the dam at the waterworks when the pond was still relatively new. Among the men in the group are thought to be Willis Edwards, Alvin Freeman, Buel Hubbard, John R. Cates, Howard Taft, Hope Hubbard and Dr. T.B. Davis. Bolton Springs was Newnan's sole source of water until the 1950s. when a raw water intake and pumping station was constructed on White Oak Creek. The water treatment plant and Reservoir Number One were constructed in 1923 after demand for water increased and because water could not be pumped during rainy seasons when the woods branch from Bolton Springs became muddy.
