1935 ... Pickens County's economic picture includes the industrial
and commercial activities
carried on in her three (3) incorporated towns -- Jasper, Talking Rock, and Nelson -- and two
towns that are incorporated -- Tate and Marble Hill. In the last three last-named places are
centered the activities of The Georgia Marble Company, one of the State's leading industrial
concerns; and all five towns, while comparatively small, are favorably located to serve
prosperous farming sections. "History of Pickens County by Luke E. Tate -- 1935"
