1. Alpharetta Hotel Site Marker
Inscription. The property was the original location of the Alpharetta Hotel built by Bob Webb in 1908.

The hotel was torn down in the 1970ís. 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.

Dedicated July 4, 1989
