WINDER in the NEWS, Newspaper Accounts of Winder, Georgia, 1893 - 1915
In 1893 the little town of Jug Tavern was renamed Winder. This town was unique as it was formed where three counties
met - Jackson, Gwinnett and Walton - with parts of the town being in three different counties. This created problems for its
citizens having to go to three different court houses for any legal matters. This book tells of the struggles of its citizens
to have a new county formed, which finally took place in 1915 when Barrow County was formed from Jackson, Gwinnett and Walton.
Much historical information is included, containing the names of those people who helped form Winder and Barrow County,
as well as being an excellent source of genealogical information. The newspapers contained much local news, death and marriage
notices, jury lists, some sketches on family lines, and general information.
