Lanier County

A woman drives a carriage in Lanier County, circa 1900. Industrialization drove the development of the county's two main communities during the nineteenth century. Alapaha (later Lakeland, the county seat) began as a mill village, while Registerville (later Stockton) was a railroad town.
