We now speak of “the Allatoona boom,” which appears to be on. Besides the two new houses erected by Captain James Lemon, of Acworth, who at the late sale, purchased the larger part of the T. C. Moore plantation, Mr. John C. Armstrong, also of Acworth, who purchased the other, having erected last summer an elegant brick store, has now torn down the old residence and old store on the property formerly occupied by his son-in-law, Mr. Butler, and of the materials put up a neat dwelling on the site of the latter. On the site of the former he will later put up a fine new dwelling for himself, as he contemplates moving to this place. The old residence above was, in a sense, historic, and was certainly one of the oldest buildings in this part of the country, having been put up by John A. Dawson about 75 years ago, from him passing successively to Jefferson Clark, John Clayton and Mrs. T. C. Moore. It was represented in the war pictures and uses.
