Alpharetta in Fulton County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Alpharetta Hotel Site
The hotel was torn down in the 1970’s. It once housed a Boarding House for single school teachers which was operated by Lillian Teasley. It was the home of the Morris Brothers for many years.
After some renovations, the Post Office, Bank, Dr. James L. Morris, Gordons Department Store and many other small shops were located in the building.
The citizens of Alpharetta reserve this beautiful property in memory of all who lived on this property, shopped here and have fond memories of this square located in the center of our city.
