Dresden TN, ca 1920's photographs

These stamps were found among the papers of James Henderson Moran IV. We believe they date from the  mid 1920's to the mid 1930's.

The Weakley County Court House was built in 1858 and was lost to a fire in 1948.  For more information about the courthouse and the fire read the article that appeared in the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Methodist Church S., Dresden Tennessee.
The first Church was built in 1833.  The Moran family were members and helped in many ways.  In the 1800's, Mrs. Sophia Riley Gunn Moran, along with Mrs. C.W. Cottrell, aided in selecting new pulpit furniture.  Both ladies donated one chair each.  Mr. John Williamson Moran planted the trees and cared for them for many years.
