Cleveland Better Home Town Committee
by the Cleveland Better Home Town Committee
The Georgia Power Company, in order to encourage economic development in the smaller communities, begin the Better Home Town contest in which each community would organize their communities, inventory their assets and encourage economic development and industrial attraction. Each year the participating communities would conduct an inventory and prepare a Scrapbook describing their community and it's activities. The scrapbooks were judged according to community size and prizes were awarded.Cleveland, GA participated in this contest for several years and two of the scrapbooks have survived. The 1953 Scrapbook is presented here.
