Images of America: Jarrell

$21.99

In 1909, real estate developer Orlando D. Jarrell had a vision: He would sell lots near the Bartlett Western Railroad site and name the town Jarrell. When the railroad bypassed the nearby town of Corn Hill and Jarrell’s lots began to sell, the residents of Corn Hill–and their houses–moved to the promising, new town. Rock quarries became and are still a mainstay of this area, shipping limestone all over the world. About 200 vintage photographs illustrate the time between 1855 and more recent years, including the monstrous 1997 tornado that put Jarrell into the national spotlight.
