First Court to be Held at Chatsworth, 1913

From The Atlanta Constitution
Aug. 7, 1913



Ringgold, Ga., August 6. (Special.) The place of holding Murray county court will be changed, as will be seen from the following order, which has been sent to Murray county papers:

"The legislature having passed a bill changing the county site of Murray county from Spring Place to Chatsworth, and the people of Chatsworth having tendered suitable rooms for the transaction of the business of the court including grand and trovers jury room, and also a room for the solicitor general, I have decided that it is my duty to hold the approaching and all future terms of the superior court of Murray county at Chatsworth, the new county site, hoping that a suitable courthouse will be erected there as soon as practicable.

"Therefore all court officials, lawyers, jurors, parties, and witnesses will take notice and govern themselves accordingly.

"A. W. Fite, J. S. C. C. C.
August 5, 1913."
