Springplace, once a missionary station amongst the Cherokees, and now the county seat of Murray county, was incorporated by act of the legislature in 1885. When the projected railroad from Dalton, Ga., to Murphy, N. C., is built, it ought to give to Spring­ place the impetus that has built up so many towns in Georgia. Its location is attractive, being in the midst of charming scenery, with the Cohutta mountains in full view, and within ten miles of the Cohutta Springs, whose waters are said to possess' great medicinal values. It has a handsome court house, good schools and churches, a money order postoffice with rural free delivery and stores well stocked for the country trade. The population of Springplace according to the census of 1900 was 213. There was some skirmishing here on Feb. 27, 1864, as Thomas was advancing against the Confederate position at Dallas. Other skirmishes occurred near the same place during the first week of the following April.  Comprising Sketches of Counties, Towns, Events, Institutions, and Persons, Arranged in Cyclopedic Form Transcribed by Kristen Bisanz
