North & South Railroad of Georgia
Organized in Rome in August 1871, the North & South was an early attempt to build a railroad along Georgia's western border from Columbus to LaGrange, Carrollton, and Rome. The company built about twenty miles of track before entering receivership in 1874. It was sold in 1878 and reorganized in 1879 as the Columbus & Rome Railroad.
