Bibb City Recorder Clippings Scrapbooks (MC 100)

Organizational Note

Bibb City played a central role in the textile industry in Columbus, Georgia. The Bibb Mill founded the town around its Columbus mill, at one time the largest cotton mill in the world. The company built Bibb City and controlled this mill town, complete with churches, schools, gymnasium, swimming pool and all other facilities, from its incorporation in 1907 until 1964 when the company began selling the houses to residents. The Bibb City Recorder was the company owned newspaper for the residents of Bibb City and featured activities for adults and children, churches, schools, social groups, adult education night class and recreational events. The Recorder showed the pride that was shown toward the educational attainments of the residents.
